Full Power Restoration Could Take up to a Week, PECO Says

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, PECO has said that it may take up to a week to restore power to the area.

It may take up to a week to fully restore power to the Bucks County area, according to PECO.

More than 850,000 customers are without power, which makes Hurricane Sandy the most damaging storm in the company's history. Of the 850,000 affected customers, tens of thousands are in the Levittown area.

From our Facebook page (http://Facebook.com/levittownpatch): "Power either was not lost or is back up in Penndel/Langhorne. Many businesses are open for hot meals and supplies - Penndel Hardware (Bellevue Ave.) and Lincoln Hwy - McDonald's, BP gas/mini-mart, Tummie Yummies (chicken, ribs, sanwiches, pizza), Free Wheelin Pizza, Golden Garden Chinese, Denny Electric, ... I'm not sure about Bottom Dollar Food near the Lang. Train Station - Penndel Shopping Center. Their # is 215-752-2235." - Melissa Casey

Still nothing in Pinewood,( Tullytown Boro.) Can't find a hotel room. Can't sleep without a cpap. Got 3 hours since 8pm. Monday. Feel like a Katrina victim. Think I will get relocated somewhere that is habitable???? If I were a redlight I could get a generator.

When I am traveling where there is no power, I use an inverter with a car or wheelchair battery. I find that 8-10 hours of sleep does not drain the battery too badly... will still start the car.

power still out in edgely (canal side) on 13. I thought I was prepared. I pretested my generator just before the storm. started on 2 pulls ran fine figured I was set. did not attempt to start it till this morning (fridge and freezers stayed cold enough and all my lighting is LED based so battery power was sufficient for lighting needs and charging cell phones and gadgets. it would not start at all. there must have been gunk in the tank (yes it was stabilized fuel but this ethanol fuel is simply horrible !! need to get a diesel generator gasoline is largely useless long term now with ethanol in the fuel. this gunk must have clogged the jets. Grrr so I have to drive back home from work in the morning and pull out my generator backup. 3000watt inverter that I hook up to the minivan engine :-) run the fridge and freezer for a few hours to make sure things stay cold/frozen till power comes back online. Grrrr :-) SO always prepare and always have backups for your backups :-)

they have begun trying to lower http://www.coachoutletmls.com expectations.Consolidated Edison, for example, tucked an especially http://www.hemesbelscq.com dire note into a news release on Thursday afternoon. It said the http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com “vast majority” of its customers in New York City http://www.coachoutletonlinehl.net and the northern suburbs should have power by Nov. 11, http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org but a significant number could remain in the dark for http://www.coachoutletuso.net a week or more beyond that.John Miksad, the company’s senior
