Mid-American Energy is doubling the number of employees that will help get the power back on after Sandy.
Saturday, 116 people were sent to New York from Iowa. Tuesday the utility agency sent more than 200 Mid-American employees, line-workers and tree crew members to New York.
It's estimated that at least 20,000 utility workers will be needed to help the eastern portion of the U.S. recover.
