MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Several power companies in Alabama are getting ready to send crews north to help those who may be affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Friday afternoon, Alabama Power and Dixie Electric confirmed they're mobilizing crews.

Alabama Power says it is preparing to send 365 members of its staff north over the weekend. The crews are set to leave from different points around the state Saturday morning.

Alabama Power officials say their crews will travel to areas just outside of Washington, D.C.

Dixie Electric Cooperative is sending two 5-person crews to a staging area in North Carolina Saturday. They will remain there on standby, waiting to see how the storm develops, before moving into Virginia.

Hurricane Sandy is already responsible for more than 40 deaths in the Caribbean and is being called a 'Superstorm' as it moves up the eastern seaboard of the United States.
