Over 100 Northern Region Forest Service personnel are at Fort Dix, New Jersey and will soon be heading to storm-damaged areas on the east coast.

Team leader Brett Lewis told KGVO News Tuesday morning that the workers will be transported to east coast areas hard hit by Superstorm Sandy. Lewis says the crews are skilled in the use of chain saws, and will help free downed power lines collapsed by falling trees.

The workers will remain in the ares for several weeks helping restore power to hundreds of thousands of households and businesses in the storm-ravaged area.
