BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) - Duke Energy is still helping those affected hurricanes in Puerto Rico.
More than 150 Duke Energy linemen have helped out there for the past six months.
One lineman, Dave Siples, from Brazil just returned home after 54 days.
He says the days were long and hot...and that it was challenging.
He added helping the people in need was worth it.
"The people were so great to us. Yo know, they didn't complain that they didn't have their lights back on yet. They were just thankful we were there," Siples said.
