Some People Still Don’t Have Power

Just under 2,000 in the region are without power after huge outages last week.

After a massive ice storm cut electricity to swaths of the area last week, there are still almost 2,000 people without power. NBC 10 reports:

“We do understand that customers are frustrated right now,” said PECO spokesman Greg Smore said Monday. “We are working around the clock in order to get their service restored.”

Around 5,000 utility crews from around North America are working around the clock. Crews worked hard through the weekend to re-string power lines and get the juice flowing again as scores of homes turned into freezers among sub-freezing February temperatures.

PECO has been tweeting images of crews fixing power lines:




The outage from last week's storm was the second-worst in PECO's history.
