CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Nearly half of the people who remain without power about 10 days after Superstorm Sandy are in Preston and Randolph Counties.
FirstEnergy's website says about 12,700 Mon Power customers remained without service Friday morning.
Nearly 3,400 of those are in Preston County and nearly 3,100 are in Randolph County.
But the utility has brought in more crews and aims to have service fully restored by the end of the weekend.
Sandy dumped as much as 2 feet of snow in West Virginia's higher elevations, knocking down countless trees that tore down power lines as they fell.
At the height of the outages, nearly a quarter-million people were without power.
MonPower asks that if you have not yet reported your outage, please do so by calling 888-544-4877. Please also re-report your outage if your neighbors have had power restored, and you have not.
