Edmond Electric crew prepping to leave for Florida to assist with Hurricane Irma

EDMOND, Okla. - While many Oklahomans are assisting with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, another group of Oklahomans are preparing to leave for Florida to help with Hurricane Irma.

The City of Edmond announced on their Twitter page crews with Edmond Electric will be heading to Florida.

They are prepping to leave early Sunday to assist with Hurricane Irma.

“The sooner you get them back in power, the sooner the normalcy comes back," said Wesley Bennett with Edmond Electric. "Right now, everyone’s scared, they’re nervous, they don’t know what’s going to happen. If you can get there and get the lights back on, then it feels a little bit more normal.”

The City of Edmond said they will provide updates as the crew heads out to assist.
