Crews with Kentucky Power are helping restore services to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

95 KP employees and contractors left Kentucky on Saturday to assist the company’s sister organization, AEP Texas.

Corporate Communication Manager Allison Barker says the trip took longer than expected.

Kentucky Power is part of a mutual assistance agreement with AEP Texas -- that company sends crews to Eastern Kentucky when winter weather disturbs service in the region.
