It's already been debunked in another thread from a link someone provided. It is also counter to everything I have experienced in my brother's 20+ years with the power company. It's a rumor that gets floated all the time in situations like these so that people who don't have two clues to rub together can pick it up and run with it.
Outside help from power companies is determined long before storms even appear. These are based on existing trade agreements because different areas work under different regulations. When a storm hits, people don't randomly just say, "hey I'm going to go to New York and help out"...if they do, they get turned away.
