CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
The worst of Sandy's effects on the Tri-State are behind us and now the focus switches to how we can help those impacted.
Early Wednesday morning, dozens of Duke Energy teams will head east to New York to aid in the restoration efforts.
To put the power outages into perspective, during Hurricane Ike in 2008 around 900,000 people were without power here in Cincinnati.
As of Monday afternoon, around eight million people across the east coast are in the dark.
With rain, snow, high winds and strong fronts, sandy was the definition of a perfect storm.
"Pretty much everything that could happen during a disaster has pretty much happened during this event," said Tim Mettey, CEO and disaster relief coordinator at Matthew 25: Ministries in Blue Ash.
With Cincinnati in the clear, groups like Matthew 25: Ministries are now organizing supplies to be shipped off to areas in need.
"We're working with our partners right now to establish their needs and how much they're going to need and over what period of time they're going to need it," Mettey explained. "So right now we're getting all ready to be shipped out."
Mettey said that despite people being more prepared for this storm than others in the past, the clean up and restoration will require supplies for the next several weeks. For more information on Matthew 25: Ministries and to donate to their cause, you can visit their website.
Now that the danger has passed, and there is no threat to power outages here locally, the Duke Energy offices in Cincinnati will send 200 teams to New York to assist other power companies.
"Certainly the rail system underground is going to be unique," explained Sally Thelen, spokesperson for Duke Energy. "They are reaching out. There are urgent requests for people with that expertise and skill, which frankly isn't as easy to come by."
The Duke Energy teams could be deployed for as long as 14 days.
As the threat passes, we have learned of many organizations collecting goods to be sent to the east coast the next few days and weeks.
They are looking for non perishable foods, personal care items, and cleaning supplies.
Catholic Charities of SW Ohio, an agency of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, is collecting donations for those affected by Hurricane Sandy as part of the Disaster Relief efforts of Catholic Charities USA.
"This is a time when we need to come together as a nation and Church, helping those of our brothers and sisters who are being left vulnerable and in need," explained Ted Bergh, Chief Executive Officer of Catholic Charities of SW Ohio. "It doesn't matter where we live, we are all impacted by the damage and suffering caused by this storm." For information on how you can donate, call Steve Feldmann, Director of Agency Advancement at 513-241-7745.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul-Cincinnati is collecting money to help provide relief for families affected by Sandy. All money collected will go to St. Vincent de Paul organizations on the east coast where volunteers are already helping those in need.
"Our prayers are with those who have been impacted by the storm," said Liz Carter, executive director, St. Vincent de Paul-Cincinnati. "We also pray for those who await word on the safety of their loved ones and for the volunteers and staff of the emergency, rescue and relief organizations who face the daunting challenge of helping their neighbors move on and put their lives back together."
