• After hours without heat, power restored to East Pittsburgh housing complex

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - About 200 to 300 people were without power and heat at a housing complex in East Pittsburgh Tuesday.

    "I was cooking dinner and then they (the lights) just turned completely off," said Serita Wallace, who lives at the Prospect Terrace housing complex.

    “It has been cold, but it got colder when the power went off,” said resident Ashley Armes.

    The Pittsburgh Housing Authority set up a temporary warming center in the community room, where several people took shelter.

    The power went off around 5:30 p.m. and came back on around 8:30 p.m. 
     

    The Salvation Army helped residents by handing out hot drinks and warm food while crews worked to fix the problem.
