York, Adams and Cumberland County

York, Adams and Cumberland County officials: Since Winter Storm Bessie hit last night, Met-Ed crews across the entire operating company have restored power to 17,907 customers. As of 8:00PM tonight, 843 Met-Ed customers remain without power. Below are the number of customers currently out of power in our Adams, Cumberland and York counties: Adams - 71 Cumberland - 75 York - 14 We expect to restore 95% of the customers in York, Adams, and Cumberland Counties by 12:00 midnight tonight with full restoration of all customers by 12:00 noon tomorrow. Please feel free to share this information from the attached FirstEnergy press release: With cold weather expected across the region over the next several days, customers are reminded of tips for staying safe when the power is out: • Never use a portable generator inside the house or a closed garage in the event of a power outage. Ensure the proper generator is selected and installed by a qualified electrician. • When operating a generator, the power coming into the home should always be disconnected. Otherwise, power from the generator could be sent back onto the utility lines, creating a hazardous situation for utility workers. • Gather extra blankets or a sleeping bag for each person. Do not use gas stoves, kerosene heaters or other open-flame heat sources to prevent deadly carbon monoxide gas from building up in your home. A video playlist of utility personnel discussing the impact of wind storms on equipment and restoration efforts is available on YouTube.
