Arkansas energy linemen assisting in fixing Alabama storm damage

Posted: Updated:

After powerful storms caused widespread damage, clean up is underway across Alabama Tuesday and Arkansans are there to help.     

The fast moving storms downed trees and power lines have left thousands of residents without electricity.

At least 20 Entergy Arkansas employees will help get the power back on in Alabama. A caravan of five bucket trucks and another four or five smaller support vehicles left from the Baseline Service Center early Tuesday morning.   

"We're glad to help, as it may be us needing assistance next time around," said David Lewis, Entergy Arkansas spokesman.

Similar groups left from four other regions around the state.
