JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A group of Clay Electrical Cooperative employees left last Thursday for Walterboro, S.C. to help Coastal Electric Cooperative rebuild its system after a damaging ice storm 

Clay sent 25 personnel and a convoy of 15 vehicles. 

The convoy included digger-derrick trucks, bucket trucks, material handler trucks, pickup trucks, a van and a mechanic's truck.

The crews have been busy in Walterboro restoring power.

Crew chief Ronald Harper has been in charge of Clay's crews.

He said that Coastal suffered extensive damage due to ice-covered tree limbs breaking off and falling on distribution lines and equipment. 

They will likely return on Wednesday. 

Clay Electric will be fully reimbursed for manpower and supplies used during restoration by the electric companies they are helping out.

There is no expense to Clay customers.
