Thousands of Putnam County residents had power restored overnight, but nearly 40,000 remain in the dark a day after Tropical Storm Isaias ripped through the region, toppling trees and power lines.

Nearly 500 line workers and tree personnel, including mutual aid crews, have been made available to repair a reported 1,170 damage locations, with hundreds of additional employees and personnel working in different support roles.
