ELK, Wash. – It's been a week since Superstorm Sandy hit and there are still hundreds of thousands of people without power.

To help out, Inland Power and Light may send up to four linemen to the East Coast this week to help Sandy victims.
 
One employee has already gone to New York. He'll work, among hundreds of other linemen from across the country to restore power and fix power poles.
 
The electrically industry is a highly specialized field. When emergencies like this happen it's important to pitch in, said Chad Jensen, Inland Power and Light's chief executive officer.
 
Inland Power and Light is the largest nonprofit electric cooperative. It serves 39,000 people.
