OGE crews to respond to Hurricane Florence in North Carolina

Crews from Oklahoma Gas and Electric are pitching in once again to help others with power problems.

A convoy of 30 OGE trucks with 72 employees was scheduled to leave Tuesday morning bound for Raleigh, North Carolina to help with expected damage from Hurricane Florence.

Duke Energy in North Carolina made the request for help and the OGE workers should be arriving Wednesday evening.

The utility has a long history of sending crews to assist other utilities and states following natural disasters.  At least 50 OGE trucks were sent to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. Some workers for the utility arrived in December and spent a few months in the country.
