The city of Calhoun is sending eight volunteers to Bowling Green, Kentucky to help restore power after a cluster of tornadoes tore through the state late Friday evening.
"This event is the worst, most devastating tornado event in Kentucky's history," Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said.
Calhoun has a mutual aid agreement with the companies in Kentucky.
The city posted a photo of the linemen leaving Georgia on Sunday. It was not immediately clear how long they will be in Kentucky helping to restore power.
