While cleanup in Florida continues after Hurricane Irma, a Nebraska group's work is done. 

OPPD confirms its final crew will return home today after spending nearly a week in Tampa helping get electricity back in the homes of residents in the area. 

Officials say they helped restore power to nearly 6,000 people and proved so effective they were one of the final crews sent home. 

Another OPPD crew returned from Jacksonville earlier this week.
