More than 400,000 people in the region still are without power, and many will remain without power through the weekend. As of 1:00PM Thursday, about 410,000 customers were without power, PECO said, down from a high of more than 623,000 Wednesday evening.
In a notice to customers on its website, PECO wrote that it hoped to restore power to a majority of its customers by Friday night, but warned that many will be without power through Sunday. PECO has brought in outside contractors, it said, and more than 3,500 people are working to restore service. You can report an outage to PECO by calling 1-800-841-4141.
If you are still without power there are a number of shelters across the Chester County area. Also, the Brandywine River Museum is offering free admission for the entire day stating, “Heat is on and the art is inspiring!”
