Indy Volunteers Arrive In New Jersey To Aid Hurricane Relief

A picture took a couple of hours before Hurricane Sandy arrived in New Jersey up on the street.

A volunteer group of 80 emergency responders from Marion County has arrived in New Jersey to help with relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

The group, called Indiana Task Force 1, left Indianapolis last night and arrived on the East Coast today.

Indiana Task Force 1 Battalion Chief Tom Neal says they are still battling heavy winds and rain.

“We are in some minor wind and a lot of rain. We are coming through rain dance. We are not seeing some significant issues during the night we did on our way to Akron, running in some heavy snow,” he says.

The group is waiting for instructions from federal organizations on where they are needed most. They will move to a new location once the storm dies down.
