Asplundh Tree Experts are hard at work, too. The Action Cam found crews working in Conshohocken along the 700 block of River Road.
With so many trees down, PECO says those crews are valuable to help their efforts.

"Our crews are still running into trees that are down across roads and we have to wait for tree crews to come in or municipalities to come through and help clear those roads before we can get through to the equipment that's damaged to make our repairs," PECO's Deb Yemniian said.

Delaware County has reported almost half its homes and businesses lost power at the peak of the storm.
