Residents without heat can use one of a number of warming centers set up in the region, including one at the West View Banquet Hall, 398 Perry Highway across from the McDonald’s restaurant in West View.

Public works crews have been out all day dealing with the damage from winds that blasted the region with gusts of 60 mph and higher, bringing down trees and wires that cut power to more than 100,000 eclectic customers in the region.
