More crews head south for hurricane relief

Written by

BANGOR - As Hurricane Florence makes it way through the Carolinas, repair crews are headed south to help deal with the damage.

One crew stopped at the Ramada by Wyndham Bangor Wednesday night before continuing their trek south on Thursday.

 

T&T Line Construction is bringing 115 workers to the damaged areas.

 

The New Brunswick company is making the trip to help repair power lines.

 

"I'm hoping that everybody's able to get out and get out safely. We're glad to be able to come down and give a hand to our neighbor so it's always a great feeling," company owner Tim Noble said.

 

Noble said the company is taking 50 bucket trucks to the devastated areas.

 

They'll assess the damages once there and get to work on the power lines soon after.

 

His hope is to get power back to as many homes as possible.
