    Over 200 employees of Hydro-Québec went to give a helping hand to their colleagues in New England in order to restore electricity after the passage of a storm along the East coast.

    The workers are hard at work since the middle of the day Friday in the States of New York and Massachusetts, said the State-owned Company on Saturday.

    “Our teams have line-men and support staff, as well as trucks-aerial lifts” from everywhere in Quebec, said Hydro-Québec.

    Winds of up to 120 km/h were blowing during the passage of the storm, which has caused significant damage to the power grid of New England. Hydro-Québec was not able to specify, Saturday, how long will its teams in the United States, but the State Company does not expect that they will come back within a few days.
