TROY, N.Y. -- National Guard troops are headed downstate to help with recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy.
Members of the Rainbow Division rolled out a convoy in Troy on Friday. The soldiers will be stationed in Peekskill for roughly two weeks.
Master Sergeant Palasz says they will be supporting first responders, Con Ed and helping to secure downed power lines.
Palasz said, "Long Island, New York City, the Bronx. I mean, they are without power. They are without shelter, water. So they will be providing water, whatever they need.”
Roughly 100 troops were sent downstate.
