Thunderstorms carrying heavy winds that quickly moved through Western Pennsylvania Tuesday night, have caused major power outages.

According to Duquesne Light, 9,158 customers from Braddock, Beltzhoover, Braddock Hills, Forest Hills, Ohara Township, Penn Hills, Pittsburgh’s Northside, Robinson Township, and Verona are without power this evening.

At this time, the company is not sure how long it will take to totally restore system power.

Crews will work through the night and for as long as it takes tomorrow until all power has been restored.”
