HANOVER, Pa. (WHTM) – More than 300 people in Hanover went more than 24 hours without power after Tuesday’s winter storm.
Met-Ed reported electricity had been restored to all customers by noon Wednesday.
The outage stemmed from a small fire near a transformer at a substation in eastern Hanover. The storm brought delays to getting it fixed. Getting equipment there and installed in winter conditions wasn’t easy.
“It’s very frustrating,” Hanover resident Tammy Deardorff said of the outage. “It can get to be a little bit depressing because we couldn’t sleep last night. It was so quiet, and with no power or anything, as a family, we had to put sweaters on and blankets and everything.”
Met-Ed representatives issued an apology and thanked residents for their patience.
