TRI-STATE - More than 2,000 Allegheny Power customers in the Tri-State area remained without power at 10 p.m. Monday, according to the company's online Outage Management System.
It might take until Thursday night for crews to address all of the outages, which were caused by hundreds of cases of downed branches and power lines during strong winds Sunday, Allegheny Power spokesman David Neurohr said.
In Washington County, about 270 customers remained without power, and there were more than 25 separate problem spots to address in Smithsburg alone. It could take until 11:30 p.m. Wednesday to restore everyone in the county, according to the site.
Some of the remaining outages are in remote wooded areas, where crews must clear trees to safely access the problem, Neurohr said.
