I am one of those without power, I'm over at I'm parents house now, was anyone else in the storm?PECO said:A violent, fast moving storm centered over Delaware and Chester counties yesterday causing extensive damage and power outages for 215,000 PECO customers. Strong winds and severe lightening toppled trees, downed wires and damaged electric equipment.
Customers without power should contact the company at 1-800-494-4000 to check on their restoration status. The company’s automated telephone system can quickly record your outage, allowing our Customer Care representatives to remain available to handle reports of dangerous situations. The more customers who call to report an outage, the more effectively PECO can dispatch crews and restore service.
PECO’s entire emergency response organization has been mobilized with all company resources dedicated to restoring service to customers as safely and as quickly as possible.
The company also has reached out to local contractors and neighboring utilities to secure extra crews to lend a hand.
Due to the extent of damage, we estimate that it could take several days until service is restored to all customers. PECO crews and back office support personnel will continue to work 12 – 16 hour shifts, around the clock, until all damage has been repaired and all service has been restored.
During this trying time especially, we thank customers for their assistance and patience.
We urge all customers to stay safe and keep away from downed wires and damaged electric equipment. Report these dangerous conditions to PECO immediately.
