ARMONK, N.Y. -- They helped restore power to New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and parts of Connecticut after "Snowtober," and now they're restoring your power in Armonk.

This 20-man crew from Diversified Services based in Oklahoma left home Tuesday morning and drove 40 hours in two days to get to Westchester County.

"We go to all the major hurricanes. We're glad to help," said David Kettle, the group's general foreman.

The crews in their 15 trucks already have worked three 18-hour days in Armonk and hope to finish this part of the job by the end of Tuesday or early Wednesday.

"Then we'll move to another area," Kettle said. "We expect to be here another week to 12 days."

The Diversified crew has been staying at the Edith Macy Conference Center in Briarcliff Manor along with other crews from Florida and Alabama. They come to the hotel late at night, have a quick meal and go to sleep. They're up and out by 6 a.m. every morning to continue their work.

"The support from the community is a lot better than expected. The neighbors bring us coffee and have been nice," Kettle said as he and his crew set off for work in Armonk.
