No power yet for 2.8M in Pa., N.J.


PECO has backup personnel ready to address outages caused by Hurricane Sandy, but it could take several days to get all the power back on.

A record-shattering 850,000 customers – more than half of Peco's 1.6 million – lost power at some point during the storm, so more than more half of the disconnected have been reconnected. But don't expect the other half to take another day and a half.

Crews will be out on the road way throughout the township to fix any remaining outages.
