More help from East Tennessee heading north

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- As the Northeast gets ready for another storm today, people are still dealing with Sandy's destruction.

Servicemaster Cleaning and Restoration sent two trucks from Knoxville and three more from their Johnson City office to help with water damage cleanup in New Jersey.

Ten employees from the disaster division will help people living in the township, Toms River.

The company does have offices up north, but crews are already stretched thin due to the massive amount of destruction.

Many homes are badly damaged, items inside destroyed.

Barry Jenkins of Servicemaster shared pictures of furniture, mattresses, and other items that were destroyed, piled outside of homes on the curbs.

Jenkins isn't sure how long the ET crews will be there to help out, but they will try to help as many homeowners as possible.
