On Saturday, local utility companies restored power to more than 50,000 customers, but they still have more than 40,000 to go.

In a press release Saturday night, PECO reported that 30,000 customers remained without power in Bucks County. PPL had 5,621 and Met-Ed stated it had 4,874 customers still in the dark.

Are you one of the last 40,000? How have you been coping?

In Bucks County, Bristol, Lower Makefield, Upper Makefield, Solebury townships and New Hope were the hardest hit. PECO expects most of the remaining customers to have service restored by Sunday midnight

“I want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we continue to focus on safely restoring service across the region,” said Craig Adams, PECO President and CEO.  “We know it is hard to be without electric, especially for several days. I want to assure our customers that we will not stop until every last customer is restored.”
