Power Outages Remain from Thursday Storms

Utility crews worked into the morning on Friday attempting to restore service to thousands of Pennsylvania customers. Electric service was knocked out in numerous counties as a strong storm front knocked down trees and power lines late Thursday afternoon and evening.

In the PPL service area, Berks County reported to most outages remaining Friday, but residents in at least 25 eastern Pennsylvania counties were still in the dark. PECO is attempting to restore service to customers in the five-county Philadelphia region, as well as a small area of York County.

There are reports of at least one fatality from the storms as a woman in Potter County was struck by a falling tree. The storm front continued on into New England Thursday evening, causing more damage.
