DME in Long Island

Last week, Denton Municipal Electric sent a 19-member crew to Long Island to help restore power after Hurricane Sandy.

DME tweeted out this photo Tuesday showing the crews at work.

The work is appreciated by the people of Long Island. Wednesday, as a strong winter storm was approaching, Long Island resident Kim Rocha tweeted out this photo from in front of her home.

And she offered these kind words on Twitter:

Thank you my saviors from Texas! Tonight I have power because of your awesome men! BIG HUGS from LI NY

She had been without power for 10 days.

UPDATE: Social media editor Karina Ramirez created a Storify of DME in Long Island so far. You can view it here.
