Power outage continued

This is the latest update from the OPALCO outage page.

UPDATE 5am: Crews still working on this issue. The winds are dying down so repair work may get easier. As there are a lot of mainland outages it could be sometime before power is back on from mainland. The crew has a plan for restoration once our mainland source is repaired but could still take some time to get everyone up and running. They have been patrolling and cutting out trees all morning. No estimated restoration time.
