Kansans are helping on the East Coast as Hurricane Sandy approaches.
Sharon Watson is with the Kansas Adjutant General's Department. She says Kansas is sending a response team to Maryland.
"To support them in planning, operations, logistics, finance, administration," says Watson. "Those types of behind-the-scenes roles that really help keep the disaster response running smoothly."
Watson says aircraft from some East Coast military bases have also been moved to Topeka to keep them out of harm's way.
