As of 9:00 a.m., Mon Power has restored more than 32,000 of the nearly 71,000 customers who lost power since the event began. The hardest hit Mon Power areas include Parkersburg, Clarksburg-Bridgeport, and Lewis and Preston counties. Based on the severity of the damage, the company expects this to be a multi-day outage event.
All available Mon Power personnel are involved in the restoration effort. Additional FirstEnergy resources and contractors are being deployed to Mon Power areas impacted by the weather, and efforts are continuing to secure additional support through utility mutual assistance organizations.
