BECKLEY -

The lights are coming on for some of the counties hit the hardest by the storm on Friday, June 29.

Appalachian Power has had more than 5,100 workers in West Virginia working to restore power to hundreds of thousands of customers who have spent more than a week in the dark.  According to outage figures on the company's web site, those numbers have been reduced to just a few thousand in the worst hit counties or remote areas.

Counties still affected by outages include, Fayette, Greenbrier, Monroe, Raleigh and Summers.  MonPower is still showing customers in Greenbrier, Monroe and Summers Counties without electricity.

Officials with Appalachian Power said that those who are still without power should continue to call and advise the customer solution center of the issue.

Outages can be reported to Appalachian Power's 24-hour Customer Solutions Center at 1-800-982-4237 in West Virginia or 1-800-956-4237 in Virginia.  Outages can also be reported at AppalachianPower.com.
