OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KFSM) -- OG&E line crews are on their way home from North Carolina. Crews were there assisting with restoration efforts after hurricane Dorian.

The team consisted of 64 members of line crews and resource personnel who were deployed to help Duke Energy with restoration. Dorian left more than 230,000 customers without power.

OG&E Crews worked for three days in Wrightsville Beach, N.C and were released from duty late Saturday evening.

OG&E is a member of the Midwest Mutual Assistance and Southeast Electrical Exchange (SEE), which dispatches mutual assistance teams in cases of widespread outages.
