As Kevin Jacobsen from the Northland's NewsCenter reports, COMO, a local oil company is sending  trucks and employees to the East Coast to lend a helping hand in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  Friends, family, Northlanders always willing to support those in need.

COMO confirmed that FEMA had contacted the oil company asking for their help.  They stepped up to the plate by sending five trucks and five employees that will be delivering fuel in New Jersey.

It's unknown exactly how long the COMO employees will be in New Jersey.  Kevin Jacobsen reports that Officials say two million people remain without power on the East Coast and 30,000 people are without heat. Unfortunately, they now have a storm bearing down on them that is expected to pack winds at 55mph, rain and heavy wet snow.
