LP&L Crews Head To Aide In Hurricane Rita Aftermath

In the aftermath of Hurricane Rita many South East Texas homes are still without power. That's why this morning Lubbock Power and Light Crews are going to the rescue.

Two LP&L crews will head to Kerbyville, a small town North East of Beaumont. Four linemen will help restore electricity to homes there. Crews tell us two weeks after the hurricane the community is still without full power. Along the Texas-Louisiana border, generators are powering many of those homes. "We're sending crews out there to get the lights back on," says Dale Stephens, LP&L distribution superintendent

It could take up to two weeks for crews to restore transformers and get electricity back into homes. We're told they may even be sent to other communities to restore electricity there as well. LP&L employees will leave Lubbock this morning at nine.
