Indiana is sending help to Louisiana

More than a million people are still without power from Hurricane Gustav.  But some Indiana workers hope to change that.

Thursday morning, nearly 60 people from Indiana's electric cooperatives left for Louisiana - including some with the Clark county REMC.  30 trucks on their way to the Gulf Coast to work with the Louisiana electric cooperatives.

The overall damage is reported to be more extensive than after Hurricanes Katrina or Rita.

Crews will be changed out in about 10 days.  Officials expect it could take about 30 days to help restore power.
