Massive effort continues following region's worst winter storm in 15 years

12 February 2010 - More than 1,200 personnel, including crews from as far away as Illinois and Michigan, hit the streets as PECO's around-the-clock work continues to repair damage and restore power across the region following Wednesday's brutal storm.

As of 5 a.m. onFebruary 12, about 14,000 customers remained without power.

More the 600 individual jobs remain to be completed. And while steady progress is being made, job site conditions continue to slow restoration efforts. Because of this, power may not be restored to all customers for a few more days. The company's entire Emergency Response Organization, including field and back office personnel, will continue to work 12 to 16 hour shifts until power is restored for all customers.
