PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The ice storm which moved through the region is long gone, but has left some areas still without power. Fewer than 6,000 customers remain without service.
At the height of the icy wallop, PECO reported tens of thousands of customers without service. PECO spokeswoman Kathy Engle says transformers and other equipment were knocked out.
“There’s been a lot of damage to our equipment, to utility lines to trees around our equipment that our crews have been focusing on.”
Most customers have been restored. But some areas hardest hit by the storm, like portions of Bucks County, which still has about 2,000 outages, could take a little longer — maybe even Friday — before power is back on.
