Jon Crispin's Notebook

Utility Workers

Posted in People, Weather by joncrispin on 06/11/2012

As I drove up the New Jersey Turnpike yesterday on my way back from DC, I saw lots of FEMA trucks heading to the Jersey shore.  There was a large group of workers in front of the Woodrow Wilson service area waiting to find out if they could get fuel for their trucks.  I talked to these 3 guys for a bit.  They are from Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Kansas, and have no idea how long they will be in Ocean Port, NJ getting utilities back up and running.  The DOE has the huge task of coordinating crews from all over the country and it is great to see workers from so far away arriving to help out people who are really hurting.
