PECO is reporting that more than 200,000 customers are without power following Wednesday's early morning ice storm, and said it expected that even more would lose power as the day goes on.
More than 1,000 crews are working to restore the power, PECO said.
PECO warned customers to always assume that downed wires are live, even if power to the neighborhood is out.
No timeline was given for power restoration.
