Heat, Storms Leave Hundreds Without Power

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The thunderstorms and the hot weather have caused some power outages in the Pittsburgh area.

According to Duquesne Light, 3,300 customers are without power, mostly in the northern and eastern parts of Allegheny County.

Crews are out working on bringing customers back on line.

Duquesne Light is still assessing the damage, so it’s unclear at this point when power will be restored.

Allegheny Power is reporting about 6,500 outages in Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland counties.

The Central Electric Cooperative reports 3,500 outages in Armstrong, Butler, Venango and Clarion counties.

Because of power outages in Pulaski Township and Daugherty Township, emergency management officials opened a cooling center at the Pulaski Fire Hall on Sunflower Road.

    Maybe Duquesne Light could give updates as to the work being performed or even the inclination as to when the work will be done!!! Maybe that’s too difficult also because Duquesne Light is it’s own little world.

    Start buying whole house generators, and don’t depend on the power company that simple! Folks the storm we had yesterday affected a lot of customers, with trees on power lines, power lines down, transformers blowing up, because of hot weather, and winds your going to have power outages!
