Entergy Ark. workers to return from storm work

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Entergy Arkansas says its workers will soon be returning after helping restore power on the East Coast following Superstorm Sandy.

Entergy says six crew members are scheduled to return later this week after helping in repair work following the storm that knocked out power to an estimated 9.6 million customers in the northeastern United States.

Entergy Operations Manager Larry Shields says about 200 workers were sent in October — first to the Washington, D.C. area. They also worked in New Jersey and New York.
