Power was expected to be restored Thursday night to most Washington County homes and businesses, two days after a violent storm accompanied by three tornadoes wreaked havoc in some areas.
Following the storm, 41,000 customers in Allegheny Power's five-state region were without electricity, and 4,500 Hagerstown City Light Department customers were without power.
City Light had restored power to all its customers by 9:30 p.m. Thursday, said Karl Kohler, City Light official.
By Thursday afternoon, about 700 Allegheny Power customers in the Williamsport area were still without power, but workers expected to have it restored by evening, said Angie Figueroa, Allegheny Power spokeswoman.
Hagerstown Business College President Jim Gifford complained that the school remained without power Thursday, forcing the school to suspend classes for two days, while electricity had been restored to homes and businesses surrounding him.
