July 8, 2014 - Thousands were without power following thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, but power has been restored, according to Penelec.

Penelec crews had their hands full working to restore power. In the city there were 2,600 customers affected, and in Millcreek there were 3,700 customers without power. Even the Millcreek Mall saw some outages. The thousands of outages were storm related and now power has been restored to almost all who were affected.

Penelec Spokesman Bill Jerin says now crews are gearing up for another possible round of storms this afternoon. "We'll hold crews over and make sure that we do have coverage. We'll call crews in to ensure that we will have a safe reliable operation and also we fully staff our operations center," Jerin said.
