LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Help is on the way from the Louisville area to help with Hurricane Sandy recovery.
Local workers are preparing to head to the disaster zone.
Bob Perkins has a trailer full of cleaning supplies, power washers, generators and chainsaws that will soon hit the road, heading east.
Perkins is a volunteer with the KY Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Team. He's part of what's called the "mud-out crew," helping to clean the homes of storm victims.
"We clean it out, sanitize it, pressure wash it," Perkins said. "And, again, it gives the homeowner hope to get started back rebuilding, and we clean that mess up for him."
And it's a huge mess. The KBC will send more 100 volunteers to the northeast. Along with cleaning crews, they'll send mobile kitchens.
While groups like the KBC are providing food and shelter, Kentuckiana is also helping restore power. LG&E is sending 400 crews to the northeast to help repair power lines. And from Indiana, Duke Energy is dispatching more than 100 workers to West Virginia.
Perkins says disaster relief is the hardest work he's ever done...but also the most rewarding.
"If they need help and we can provide it, we'll give it to them," he said.
Groups such as the Red Cross, the KY Baptist Convention and local utilities are providing people and power.
LG&E says it still has plenty of resources left in case of any power problems here.
And along with manual labor, the Kentucky Baptist Convention is sending chaplains to help with spiritual needs.
