California sends aid to storm-struck East

LOS ANGELES (AP) - California has sent help to Eastern areas pounded by a huge storm.

Gov. Jerry Brown says the California National Guard on Monday flew airplanes, helicopters and two specialized rescue teams to North Carolina. Last weekend, 10 search-and-rescue experts from fire departments up and down the state were sent to Virginia and other areas.

Brown says more than 80 people trained in medical aid and emergency response were being sent.

Pacific Gas & Electric says it's sending more than 150 workers to help restore power in New York.

The storm that made landfall in New Jersey on Monday killed at least 17 people in seven states and cut power to more than 7.4 million homes and businesses.
