Fayetteville, N.C -- Some of the Florida Power & Light crews that went to the Northeast U.S. to restore power to those affected by Hurricane Sandy are returning home.


The crews are spending Monday night in Fayetteville, N.C., and will be back in Florida on Tuesday, according to a release.

The storm hit on Oct. 29 and some employees began heading north on Oct. 28, mostly helping customers in New Jersey. The FPL crews have helped 50,000 businesses and homes get the lights back on.

About 125 FPL workers will remain in the Northeast, helping those who remain without power.

A billboard thanking the FPL crews for their service will be on display on Interstate 95 south near Interstate 295 near the Jacksonville International Airport until Nov. 17.
