Hundreds Without Power

Hundreds of people across Central Pennsylvania were without power more than a day after the recent winter storms.
ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - Hundreds of people across Central Pennsylvania were without power more than a day after the recent winter storms.

At the peek of power outages more than 10 thousand homes were without electricity. The worst hit was Centre County who had nearly 6 thousand outages.

The Diehl’s in Altoona were without power for about 24 hours after the storms. They've lived at the same house for about 30 years and say it's never taken this long to get the power back on before.

They were able to listen to a battery powered radio by lamp light. But with no power to their refrigerator they put all their food on coolers on the front porch, to keep it from spoiling.

The people living on the 900 block of 24th avenue were an island of dark when their neighbors right across the street had power.

Penelec crews got to their block late Tuesday night and were working on a utility pole on their block. With the snap the circuit was fixed and the block had power again.

Shawn Hanlin said on the night before thanksgiving their block now had something to be really thankful for.
