The Indiana County emergency response team — specialists organized previously to immediately respond to situations like Isabel's arrival — this morning reported a relatively quiet night in the county. Indiana County Commissioner Bernie Smith said the team spent the night in the county's Emergency Management Agency center to monitor the storm, but the most threatening weather skirted the county. Smith said the county received less than one inch of rain and he described the overnight winds as moderate. The highest wind speed recorded overnight at the Indiana County Airport was a gust at 49 mph. REA Energy electric cooperative brought in electrical contractors and tree-trimming crews this morning to help restore service to an estimated 60 customers who remained without power following the tropical storm, an REA official reported. At the height of the storm, about 1,600 REA customers — including 700 in Indiana County and 900 in Cambria County — lost service, according to Chad Carrick, the business development manager at Indiana-based REA. Most of the customers had power restored by 5:30 this morning. Power lines fell in the village of Home and left about 120 households and businesses in the dark, according to Murphy Montler, the district manager for Penelec. The storm interrupted service to about 10 customers in the Commodore area. In scattered areas around the county, Montler said, maybe 20 others also lost power. "There are many service lines down affecting individual homes," Montler said. "We expect we'll be in good shape by the end of the day." > Volunteer firefighters in Indiana, Saltsburg and Rossiter re- ~ sponded last night and eariy today to downed utility.wire's,'•!" tree limbs and other debris'oh v a' J * handful of area roads. Meteorologist Lee Hendricks at the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh said forecasters yesterday expected Isabel to travel at about 25 mph as it passed over Pennsylvania. But from Thursday evening until 8 a.m. today it was moving over land at about 40 mph."The faster it moves, the better for us," Hendricks said. Periods of rain — accumulating perhaps only another half- inch of precipitation — should end by late afternoon, Hendricks said. A flood watch was to remain in effect for the region until noon. Members of the county's emer- gency response team who stood by at the EMA center were Smith; Harry McFarland of the Indiana County Chapter of the American Red Cross; Indiana County Deputy Sheriff- David••Rostis; -Randy Thonias of CiuzSns' Am- bujance Service; ham radio pper- > ator Rusty O'Donnel; and Paul" Beatty, David Drye, Tom Stutzman and other members of the county's EMA staff. Reacting to Gov. Ed Rendell's declaration of a statewide disaster emergency due to Hurricane Isabel, Indiana County's school districts canceled classes today and the Indiana County Courthouse is closed. Indiana Regional Medical Center cancelled all programs and classes today, and the hospital's satellite offices in Cherry Tree, Jacksonville, Northern Cambria, Plumville and Saltsburg are closed today. Patients who had appointments at the satellite offices should call those offices on Monday to reschedule.

Rummel, Smicksburg Utilities call in reinforcements Accidents Lottery By MARC LEVY Associated Press Writer HARRISBURG, Pa. — Utility companies were working to restore power to 700,000 Pennsylvania customers left without electricity by a downgraded Tropical Storm Isabel that raced through the state overnight. Even though the hurricane lost power after making landfall in North Carolina, power companies saw the effects of the high winds and downed trees. Some 325,000 Peco Energy customers in southeastern Pennsylvania lost power during the storm, with heavy outages re- ported in Delaware and Chester counties, spokeswoman Vonda Paiger said this morning. About 211,000 PPL Corp. customers were without power — 136,000 of them in the Harrisburg and Lancaster areas — as of 4:30 a.m., the company said. Met-Ed had about 20,000 customers without power, mostly in York and Berks counties, spokeswoman Marybeth Smialek said. To help repair downed power lines as quickly as possible, Ex- elon Corp. sent 300 utility bucket trucks to Pennsylvania, while its subsidiary, Philadelphia-based Peco, said it was receiving crews from as far away as Georgia and Michigan. In western Pennsylvania, Duquesne Light Co., which has 580,000 Pittsburgh-area customers, provided a Web site to show where crews were working on power outages. PPL Corp., with about 1.3 million electricity customers across eastern and central Pennsylvania, was most worried about floods and winds loosening trees from the soft, saturated soil. Spokesman George Lewis said PPL had about 1,000 workers ready to respond to problems, with utilities in New York and New England ready to send additional crews to help should the company summon them.
