(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania utility companies are reporting more than 300,000 people are without power throughout the state, as the number of outages continues to rise rapidly.
At 8:00 p.m. tonight, Peco in southeastern Pennsylvania was reporting over 105,000 customers without power. FirstEnergy was reporting about 104,000, and PPL was reporting about 99,000. Bucks County, where more than 50,000 people are without power, appears to be one of the worst hit in the state.
The utilities have lined up extra repair crews and some are still out working, but utility officials say some people could be without power for days as crews take shelter while the worst of the hybrid storm Sandy passes.
Larger numbers of people are already without power in New Jersey.
