Duquesne Light Update

Here’s the latest update from Duquesne Light on progress:

10 p.m. update – 2-7-2010

PITTSBURGH – Duquesne Light crews continue to make significant progress in storm restoration tonight, as 6,400 customers remain without service as of 10 p.m. This is down from a high of 57,000 customers reached Saturday morning.

The heavy, wet snow has caused limbs and trees to break and fall into power lines, causing disruption to customers.  Compounding the problem is road conditions, slowing crews from reaching some areas.

Duquesne Light has also brought in 74 lineworkers from outside the company to help in the storm cleanup.

As restoration efforts continue around the clock, and new cases of trouble are found, Duquesne Light is projecting to have power restored to the largest number of customers by midnight Monday.  The remaining customers out of service should be restored by Wednesday afternoon.
