NEW JERSEY (WAFB) -

Louisiana State Troopers continue to lend a helping hand to those affected most by the rough weather in the Northeast.

LSP Troopers headed to New Jersey earlier this week to help out with security in the barrier areas of the state, like Jersey Shore.

Colonel Mike Edmonson landed in the New Jersey area Thursday afternoon and says the devastation in the Jersey Shore area is extensive.

Residents in that area are now dealing with the effects of a winter storm just days after coping with Hurricane Sandy. More than 50,000 extra residents are without power due to the new storm.

The Louisiana troopers began an eight day stretch on Monday but will remain after that if they're needed.
