FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Mon Power has restored electricity to about 38,000 customers who lost service during a storm.

The company says about 71,000 customers lost power Tuesday night as the storm downed trees and wires. Restoring service to all customers is expected to take several days.

MonPower says in a news release that the hardest hit areas include Parkersburg, Clarksburg, Bridgeport, and Lewis and Preston counties.

The company's parent, FirstEnergy, is sending additional resources and contractors to the affected areas.
