PSEG Long Island is deploying more than 160 workers and contractors to Florida to help restore power to customers affected by ferocious Hurricane Irma.
The employees will head out Tuesday morning from Roslyn Heights and will go to Tampa to assist Florida Power & Light, Tampa Electric Company and Duke Energy.
Millions of people are still without power after the powerful storm crippled the state.
Crews have been packing up their trucks with materials in preparation for the several-week deployment, which is to restore service to those affected by the outages as quickly as possible.
PSEG Long Island has sent close to 500 workers to Florida.
