Local towing company sends supplies south

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) - A local towing company is diverting some of its resources to go down south.

Robert’s Towing in Albany is mobilizing some of the trucks and drivers to help people in the path of Hurricane Florence. Currently, four trucks have already made the trip down.

The trucks were loaded with generators to help anyone who may lose power. They were able to transport eight large generators and dropped them off in Greenville, N.C., Richmond, Va., and Savannah, Ga.

They have plans to send more.

“As of right now, we’re working with companies to send more trucks indefinitely to move water pumps and construction equipment, anything that they may need,” Kenny Jack with Robert’s Towing said.

One of the drivers came back to the Capital Region on Thursday and said that as he was headed in, many people were heading in the other direction trying to leave the region.
