Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Manpower and equipment from a Northland company are on the way to the East Coast following the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

On Monday, COMO announced FEMA tapped the oil company for its assistance in helping non-emergency vehicles in storm ravaged areas.

The company is sending a total of five trucks and five employees to New Jersey to help deliver gasoline and diesel.

Officials say the group could be out East for anywhere from four days up to three weeks, but take pride in being able to lend a helping hand, especially after dealing with the June Floods in our area.

"There was so many people in Duluth that again they did what they had to do to help their neighbors, it was a positive showing in this community," said Will Norman, chief operations officer for COMO. "Any opportunity we have to help another community out is really is just super for our employees we are looking forward to it."

Officials say two million people remain without power on the East Coast. 30,000 people are without heat.
