Allegheny Power workers back from blizzard duty
More than 150 Allegheny Power employees have returned from the northeastern United States after helping restore power in areas hit by severe ice storms.
The last 67 linemen and support workers returned Thursday night, said spokeswoman Midge Teahan. Forty-three of the employees who went to the Northeast were from Allegheny Power service centers in Williamsport, Martinsburg, W.Va., Waynesboro, Pa., and McConnellsburg, Pa., she said.
Ice storms in early January cut off power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses in parts of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
