Storm Damage Updates
PLEASE READ ENTIRE MESSAGE:
Met-Ed is continuing its response to yesterday’s significant storm event, working diligently to restore power to devastated areas. Accessing the region has been difficult, as there have been countless trees and poles down, along with road closures throughout the area. Met-Ed currently has approximately 45 line crews dispatched to the region along with forestry crews. Additional teams from our other operating companies are heading to York County to assist in restoration efforts. At this time, an estimated time of restoration has not been established.
Individual damage reporting is available for residents to report their impacts to private property. It can be found on the main York County webpage: https://yorkcountypa.gov/ Click on ‘Report Your Damage.’
