Mon Power: Many Homes in Gilmer and Area Counties Still without Power
As of Monday morning, there were 27,000 homes and businesses, serviced through Mon Power, without electric service.
Some of those outages were new additions from storms on Sunday as well.
First Energy Spokesperson Patti Michael said their goal was finish most of the restoration work by the end of the day Monday.
First Energy is the parent company of Mon Power.
However, she says, “What we’re finding is that, as we’re moving into these hard hit areas, we’re finding additional restoration needs and additional damage that has occurred,“ Michael said.
More than half of the homes and businesses in West Virginia lost power in the June 29, 2012 Derecho.
