Oklahoma crews continue their work in the southeast to help after Hurricane Irma.

About 30 linemen from local co-ops, including East Central Oklahoma Electric out of Okmulgee, are in eastern Georgia helping to restore power.

They're scheduled to be there for two weeks and will then decide if more crews are needed.

GRDA crews are in central Florida, helping with the cleanup as well.

They're working about halfway between Tampa and Orlando.

30 linemen are helping with power restoration and clearing debris from lines.
