Local linemen restore power in Florida
MOORHEAD—Although damage from Hurricane Irma is thousands of miles away, people from our metro are doing what they can to help hurricane victims.
Moorhead Public Service sent four linemen last Friday to Florida.
They're part of a group of 80 people sent down by the Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association trying to help restore power in the state.
Moorhead Public Service says it'll always try to help people in need, if there's enough manpower to do so.
"I think the whole community around here is excellent with giving to other people in other communities so it was almost a no brainer that we would send someone," said Joe Moore, Moorhead Public Service.
The linemen are expected to be there for about two weeks.
