An emergency management team from Missouri is headed to New York to help manage volunteers and donations in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.

Governor Jay Nixon's office says the New York emergency management office asked for help from Missouri's State Emergency Management Agency. The request was made through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, which is part of the nation's mutual aid system.
