Did anyone notice if Dormont Avenue and McFarland Road were okay this morning? Wondering how much of the area is affected, or if it's just the plaza.

Hi guys, Check the article for updates. I was able to get some info from both the borough and from Duquesne Light. Dormont residents—you should be fine. I'm told it's just the plaza that's without power, due to a transformer problem.
