Area begins to recover after the storms
Power is being slowly restored around the state and necessities are slowly coming back too. Distributors of ice and dairy and meat products are working to get those products out quickly to the stores and gas stations that do have power. The top priority has been to bring more fuel to an area stretching from Ohio to Washington DC to keep the all-important generators running. Hospitals and nursing homes are the first priority, and fuel trucks are also being diverted to highways to make sure drivers don't run out of gas. Contingency plans are in place, and now it seems to be a matter of patience, waiting on the power to return.
