Thousands still without power as another storm looms
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — More than 100,000 utility customers in Pennsylvania are still without power following a destructive nor’easter last week — with another storm potentially on the horizon.
The governor’s office said more than 113,000 utility customers remained without power Monday afternoon, down from a high of about 587,000 during the height of Friday’s storm.
Hundreds of crews have been clearing trees and repairing power lines, but officials said some customers may not have their service restored until at least Tuesday. Dozens of schools throughout the state were either closed or holding delayed openings Monday due to power issues.
Forecasters warn that more rain and snow could come Tuesday night through Wednesday, when another nor’easter could hit — but they say the potential storm’s track remains uncertain.
