Strong, damaging winds caused widespread power outages across our 29-county service area Friday (3/26) and more outages are expected as the evening progresses.

Since our restoration efforts began earlier today, we’ve restored power to approximately 46,000 customers. Our crews are assessing approximately 640 outage locations and will continue working around the clock to restore power for all affected customers.  Approximately 22,250 of our customers remain without power.

We expect to have customers affected by today’s wind event restored by the following times:

  • Lancaster area – 11 p.m. Friday (3/26).
  • Bucks and Montgomery counties, Harrisburg, Lehigh Valley, Poconos, Scranton area – 3 p.m. Saturday (3/27).
  • Hazleton, Wilkes-Barre areas, Schuylkill County, Susquehanna Valley (Bloomsburg, Danville, Williamsport, Shamokin, Sunbury areas) – 11 p.m. Saturday (3/27).

Here are a few tips to help you remain safe and minimize the impact of a potential outage:

  • Be sure to charge your cell phones and other devices so they are ready to use in case of an outage.
  • Prepare and maintain an emergency kit with food, water, medication, and any pet supplies you may need.
  • Downed power lines are extremely dangerous. If you see a downed line, assume it’s energized and stay well clear of it.
  • If you lose power and are using a portable generator, never operate the generator in an enclosed area, like a garage, where deadly carbon monoxide fumes could accumulate.

We’re also tracking more heavy winds that may be in store for us on Sunday into Monday. We’ll be ready to respond to that storm as well.

Stay safe!
