Pittsburg, Sep 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A huge storm created havoc in Pittsburg and managed to snap the power lines in that area. There was incessant rain and very strong winds, which uprooted the trees and created destruction in the region.
According to reports, there were 82,000 households and business establishments that were without power. The Duquesne Light personnel reported that they were doing their very best so that they could restore back the power of more than 80,000 households. The region had been lashed by very powerful thunderstorm on Wednesday and since then the power had been on the blink. Even though the Duquesne light personnel were trying their best to restore the power lines, as soon as possible, but they also warned that some regions were so badly affected by the storm that power would only be back in those areas by Sunday.
Meanwhile the municipality officials issued an advisory to the inhabitants that they ought to remain indoors, because the power lines are strew all over the streets and on the roads as well. Many of the public schools have also closed as well.
Inhabitants of the region have been requested to report any outages by calling Duquesne Light at 1-888-393-7000.
