    WEST PALM BEACH, FL (CNN) - It's a story of neighbor helping neighbor, preemptively.

    Florida power and light crew members left for Arkansas this morning to help with a restoration plan before a wintry storm hits.

    More than 300 field employees and contractors from all over Florida are making the trip.

    Crews will assist Entergy, the local utility company, and help restore power if needed. A severe winter storm is expected to hit little rock and surrounding areas sometime tonight.

    The Florida crews will be in Arkansas by Friday morning.
