Sandy is expected to stretch across roughly 800 miles of the eastern shoreline with more than 50 million people affected. Now volunteer crews from right here in the Tri-State are making their way to the danger zone.
Storms have come, and they have gone. Some leaving millions of people without power or worse. And if many expert opinions prove true, Hurricane Sandy's impact will be immense.
The Red ross of Southwestern Indiana has a crew in a Harrisburg, PA staging area, including Phil Peckinpaugh. He says Harrisburg, about 150 miles from the coast, was feeling the effects of the so-called superstorm hours before it was expected to reach land.
With millions of power outages expected, former Kenergy Corp. lineman Mike Church says its their duty to bring back one resource many americans can't live without.
Several other hoosier organizations are also making the trip to help. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has sent a team of more than 100 people and 44 emergency vehicles, and other utility companies around the state have released contracted workers to areas expected to feel the brunt of the storm.
