About 213 Calhoun residences, or about 4.5% of customers, remain without power on Christmas Eve, according to Allegheny Power.

That is down from 700 outages about 24-hours ago.

Much of Calhoun was without power since the storm hit last Friday night, dumping 13"-15" of wet snow on the county.

Most of the remaining outages are in the Millstone, Mt. Zion and Orma areas.

The company website is saying those customers should have service by 11 p.m. Christmas Eve, although a line repairman told the Herald that workers will continue to restore service through Christmas Day.

Many rural residents without power have been faced with a lack of water, pumped from wells, and over 2,000 gallons of drinking water have been picked-up from county fire departments, according to 911/OES Director Kathy Wood.

Calhoun has 4,701 electric customers.
