Other utility crews throughout the state are also returning power to more and more customers.
About 65,000 customers were without power as of Saturday. That may still sound like a lot, but that's down nearly 30,000 customers from Friday.
FirstEnergy's website says that over 48,000 are still without power, while Appalachian Power reports a little more than 16,000 customers still in the dark.
More than one-quarter of a million customers were without power at the height of Sandy.

I think it a shame and disgrace that yet again we are without power since Tuesday, October 29th and are not expected to receive power until Friday, November 9th! That is a day longer than we suffered during the derecho nightmare.... Why are the utility companies, power and telephone, allowed to have such outdated lines in our area? What is the public service commission doing to get these companies to provide a dependable service to all of us? Why is HREA having uninterrupted service and Mon Power such problems? I really would like some answers.
