Red Cross Sets Up Warming Centers

PECO officials say some of the nearly 700,000 customers who lost power Wednesday could remain in the dark for several days as crews work to repair lines.

To help those dealing with outages, the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania and some local schools have set up warming centers.

Officials encourage residents to bring any items they need to make their stay more comfortable including games and books to keep children entertained.
