      Power workers are headed to help get electricity back on for storm victims.
About 400 Georgia power employees are on their way to Arkansas to help crews. They left Atlanta this morning.

     They were called in to assist Entergy, an integrated energy company, with extended restoration that will be needed after storms blow through the area.

    Georgia Power kept many workers behind, just in case the winter weather hits Georgia hard.

     Appalachian power tells us they'll send crews to help in the north with power outages. And, more could leave Monday.

     Company officials say their destination will be decided based on snowfall totals.
