COLUMBIA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - As Louisiana prepared for the destruction from Hurricane Laura, help was on the way from all over the South.

Even as Georgia Power’s line trucks roar into the Bayou State, several South Carolina crews are also hitting the road to aid in recovery efforts.

Fourteen crews from several of the state’s electric cooperatives are already en route to help. Each crew will have four to five employees.

All crews from South Carolina will be traveling to Jefferson Davis Electric Cooperative in Jennings, La. Hurricane Laura has devastated the area with the co-op reporting 100 percent of its system down.
