We caught up with Duquesne Mayor Bill Sherman, Wednesday who said power is gradually being restored to town with the area around city hall being back online since around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

For other residents in the area closer to E 12th St. in Duquesne, lights started to come back on around two o’clock Wednesday afternoon.

“Try and keep an eye on the weather, we’re supposed to have this off and on for maybe a couple more days. Be weather aware, there are shelter facilities available around Duquesne and different locations. The schools, the one here at city hall is open 24/7 — we do not lock the door,” said Mayor Sherman.

Mayor Sherman is waiting to hear back from representatives from FEMA – about the possibility of declaring the area to be in a state of disaster. He hopes to have an update, in the coming days.
