TheDailyBeast: Hurricane Sandy Heroes From Coast Guard Rescuers to Red Cross Volunteers

Martin O'Malley

One of the lasting effects of any hurricane is the widespread power outages that leave people in the dark, sometimes for weeks after the storm passes. Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is determined not to let that happen. He preemptively told his state's utility providers to get help before the storm hits so they can be prepared. “We’ve had our boot up the backside of Pepco to bring in mutual aid help from other states,” O’Malley told The Daily Beast. “I said, ‘Get the assets in here from every place you can.’” So far more than 3,000 emergency workers from other states have flooded in to help Pepco, which serves both D.C. and Maryland.
