Thousands still without power across region as another storm looms

PHILADELPHIA (AP/WTXF) -- More than 40,000 utility customers in New Jersey and 50,000 in Pennsylvania are still without power following last week's destructive nor'easter.

But officials say a new storm that's expected to hit the region Wednesday will likely result in a new round of outages.

Hundreds of crews continued to work Tuesday to clear trees and repair power lines damaged by the storm that swept in Friday.

Governor Wolf's office says about 587,000 customers were without power during the height of that storm in Pennsylvania, and some customers who lost service may not have it restored until at least Wednesday.

The new storm is expected to drop several inches of snow across most of Pennsylvania on Wednesday, with up to a foot possible in northwestern areas.

But the winds won't be as strong as last week's system.
