Here’s a Handy List of Helpful Contacts for Winter Storm Stella
Winter Storm Stella is here, and it’s shaping up to be a little more substantial than the flurry-storm duds we’ve experienced so far this winter – even if we didn’t wake up to 12 inches of snow this morning.
It’s still nasty outside, and the wind, sleet and ice are already causing frustration for commuters – and they could lead to power outages as well.
With that in mind, here’s a list of important numbers and links you might want to turn to, including utility resources, transportation agencies and more.
PECO officials say that more than 3,000 employees and contractors are prepared to respond to possible outages during the storm – but outages are possible.
