CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Slightly fewer than 99,000 homes and businesses across West Virginia remain without power in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
FirstEnergy's website said Friday morning that more than 64,000 customers of Mon Power and Potomac Edison are without electricity.
Nearly 24,000 of those are in Preston and Randolph counties, alone. The other hardest-hit counties include Barbour, Nicholas, Webster and Upshur.
Appalachian Power, meanwhile, says it's down to about 34,600 customers without power.
Restoration estimates vary, but Appalachian Power has said some customers might remain without power until Sunday night.
