MCALLEN - After two weeks of work in the East Coast, 58 AEP workers from the Rio Grande Valley are now on their way home.
The utility crews headed there before Hurricane Sandy hit. They were stationed in West Virginia, New York and Long Island. When they arrived, they immediately began working. We're told they worked in up to two feet of snow.
Work to restore power to all of the East Coast isn't done.
But AEP spokesperson Frank Espinoza told CHANNEL 5 NEWS it's time to give the workers a break. They'll be replaced with other utility crews.
