Workers Injured While Trying to Help Those Affected by Hurricanes

Hats off to all the brave men and women down in the hurricane-ravaged Gulf area. As many folks are trying to leave the area, there are those that are working extra hours, extra shifts, to try and get life back to a new normal.


A West Penn Power employee was injured Wednesday after being shocked while working on electric lines in Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

"We did have a contact incident this afternoon," said West Penn Power spokesman Todd Meyers, who did not have any information on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Meyers did not have the worker's name or hometown.

Officials from the Sarasota County Fire Department told WFLA-TV that the 53-year-old man was injured at 3:30 p.m..
