Utilities response evaluated

Appalachian Power says the storms of June 29th cost the company $62 million and the numbers could climb higher because the final tally has yet to be reached. The state Public Service Commission held a hearing Monday to discuss the response of public utilities, and executives from Appalachian Power, First Energy and West Virginia American Water Company all sent representatives. Appalachian brought in 3,500 additional workers from 22 states to help restore power after the storm.
