    Lehigh Valley Storm Cleanup

    Major storm cleanup is taking place in the Leigh Valley after many lost power during Friday's storm.

    (Published Monday, March 5, 2018)

    Strong gusting winds from a monster coastal storm knocked out power by Friday night to more than half a million customers in southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

    By Monday night, the number of customers without power was around 30,000.

    The damage in some areas from fallen trees taking down power lines and damaging transformers is so severe that it could be four days before power is restored to all homes and businesses.

    PECO customers living in Montgomery and Chester counties said the energy company told them not to expect power to be restored until at least Sunday. Several customers were told they may not have electricity until late Monday.
