Hydro-Québec sends crews to Ohio in response to Hurricane Ike

    MONTREAL, Sept. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - A delegation of some 60 Hydro-Québec
employees, including 25 line crews and administrative staff, arrived in
Wooster, Ohio, late Wednesday to help restore power to thousands of homes in
the wake of Hurricane Ike.
    Under an agreement between Hydro-Québec and several American utilities,
American Electric Power Co. enlisted the help of Hydro-Québec early this week
to deal with widespread power outages in the State of Ohio.
    Hydro-Québec participates regularly in such mutual aid missions to other
Canadian and American electric utilities.
