PECO sources state that they have over 3,500 employees working on the problem with 1,500 field employees including 200 crew members from their sister company in Chicago. They are urging people to report power outages at 1-800-841-4141.

Area schools, such as Council Rock School District, are already closed because if they have power they are being used as shelters for those who do not.
