Cumberland Gap National Park crews going to northeast to help

MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (WYMT) - Several crews from the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in Bell County are on their way to the Northeast.

The group is going to Maryland to help with recovery efforts for Hurricane Sandy. They left Monday morning and afternoon.

Crews took saws, ATVs, and all the supplies needed to get around in the hurricane aftermath.

They will help clear roads and clear trees to restore power.

"We are glad to be going up there supporting the National Park Service Incident Management Team and give them any type of support that we are able to," said Eric Cope, Lead Forestry Technician.

The crews are expected to stay several weeks. Other crews at the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park are on stand-by to go if needed.
