WASHINGTON COUNTY (KDKA) – Thousands remain powerless in Washington County.
Cecil Township is only one part of the county that has been hit hard by the ice rolling through the area.
A spokesperson for First Energy said some people may not see their power restored until the end of the week. The spokesman said it was difficult for crews to travel with all the ice and snow, plus the ice on some of the equipment that workers needed to use for repairs.
If you’re waiting for your power to come on, First Energy encourages people to limit the number of times they come in and out to prevent cold air from entering. The company recommends against using generators indoors. and have the professionals install it for you outside.
KDKA spoke to a number of powerless people who have found different ways to stay warm.
“On the wood stove, it was very hot, so Sam fried us some eggs and bacon to keep us appetizing. We are very warm but have no electricity, no iPads and no phones,” said Cecil Township resident Terry Banas. “Children are learning online and that doesn’t exist either.”
The captain of the Cecil town fire brigade has opened three heating centers in the area for those who need to go somewhere. Centers are located at the Muse and Lawrence fire stations and the Cecil Town Municipal Building.
