Wire, Wind, Weather Cause Outage

The power outage that affected about 400 customers in Foster Township today was caused by a wire that broke because of wind and other weather conditions at about 9:30 this morning.

Before 1 o’clock almost all customers had their power restored.

Penelec’s Linda Routzhan tells us that as crews work to get the circuits back to where they are supposed to be, there may be some interruptions in service this afternoon, but everything should be back to normal by late afternoon.
