Map: Shelters, Power Outages, Evacuations, Schools

Here's an interactive map of Sandy's effects in the Bucks County and Montgomery County Patch area, based on current information.

UPDATED: Wednesday, 8 p.m.

Bucks and Montgomery County Patch staff will be updating this map throughout the day on Monday to reflect the developing impacts of Hurricane Sandy.

According to some estimates, more than 10 million people were predicted to lose power in the Northeast as the storm progresses.

Full restoration of power to the Bucks County and Montgomery County areas may take up to a week to complete, according to PECO.

PECO reports more than 850,000 customers are without power on Oct. 30. That makes it the most damaging storm in the company's history.

In regards to road closures....As of 5:45 this morning, County Line was open between Warminster and Madison, but closed just West of 611 (they put the road block at Titus so you can get around). I don't know where it opens back up but I took Street up to Lower State and the road was open up there. Also, Don't try to stop at a Wawa for a Sizzli...there are none. Wawa is closed at Davisville and County Line, but both of the ones on 611 are open with a limited selection due to an inability to store food at safe temperatures. If you want to go to a restaurant to eat, head down to the Boulevard....there was no loss of power most places. 611 lost power all the way down to the turnpike, so I would doubt any food places have food they can serve. Feasterville is pretty much completely out of power down Street Road, so no Acme, Arby's, McDonalds, Taco Bell, etc. I hope this helps and I hope everyone is safe and power is restored quickly! This is the largest power outage PECO has ever had, and trust me, they're trying to get you back up and running....think of all the money they are NOT making with so many people out of power.

Cushmore Road still no power
Evelyn Sheldon October 31, 2012 at 12:25 PM
PECO recording says 11/1 at 8:10 am. On Cushmore road.
Jennifer Robert October 31, 2012 at 01:09 PM
Ok so we lost it on morris circle. That was a serious tease. Please fix ASAP!

We are in the middle of Buckingham and still without power. The PECO website says the estimated restore time is 23:00 Thursday. Calling the PECO outage number didn't help us in getting this information, btw, for those of you still trying to get an update. The website will give it to you, but if you don't already have a PECO online account you will need your account number to set up. It took me 10-15 minutes of repeated tries to get in because the site is also very picky about what you use for an account name, and every time it rejected one I had to reload, a slow process on our very tenuous internet connection. Driving around Dtown and Buckingham this morning shows that very few homes and businesses have power. The PECO crews have their work cut out for them.

Any idea when power will be restored in upper moreland near middle school
S. Morgan October 31, 2012 at 02:17 PM

Angie L. October 31, 2012 at 02:54 PM
PECO says our neighborhood near Street/ Churchville Rds will be up by 11/1 @ 8:40am.

Here's PECO's restoration status for Bucks County - it should be readable through cell phones. It does not give time estimates, but the number of "customers affected" is clearly dropping. https://www.peco.com/CustomerService/OutageCenter/OutageMap/Pages/CountyDetails.aspx?County=Bucks

Does anyone know if they cancelled Halloween trick or treating in Newtown pa ? I heard they did in other areas
CyD252 October 31, 2012 at 05:05 PM
"Finally, regarding Halloween, please know that Borough Warden Jim Gaston and I agree that public safety concerns prohibit the traditional Main Street Halloween trick or treating event from going forward tomorrow. Some folks are working on an alternative Halloween event for later in the week. I am hopeful that those plans come to fruition and that I am able to tell you more in the next day or so."

who knows any information on a power in Warminster, Meadow Glen Road and neighbourhood? Power was out since 8pm Monday.
CyD252 October 31, 2012 at 05:20 PM
I don't think that any neighborhood-specific estimates are being made available. I can't speak to your neighborhood, but a large number of Warminster residents are hearing estimates of "around 11:00pm Wednesday" (tonight).
Alison October 31, 2012 at 05:36 PM
PECO revised our estimated time of restored power here in Buckingham from 23:00 tomorrow to 23:00 today. Amazingly fast work, if they can do it.
Karen October 31, 2012 at 05:53 PM
They call to confirm that your power is back, because they may think its back but you might still have an issue. It is good customer service to send out a confirmation call just in case you still have a problem. They have had a hard time estimating time for recovery, I had the same issue that it wasn't giving me a time, until just now. It is now saying 11PM Wednesday (Hatboro-Horsham).
Anthony October 31, 2012 at 05:56 PM
Any word on Brownsville and Bristol rd area?
Evelyn Sheldon October 31, 2012 at 06:26 PM
It's amazing as you read these threads and hear from different localities that everybody lost power around 8 pm Monday. Anybody have any ideas?
marianne heether October 31, 2012 at 08:20 PM
How come southampton still doesn't have power?PECO said my power would be on last night....Its coldout. madison ave southampton
Jennifer Mohan (Editor) October 31, 2012 at 08:34 PM
PECO said some customers may be without power for up to a week. The damage from the storm was widespread, and it is taking some time to fix all of the issues.

finally got power in dorchester apt.
TMFCAQ November 01, 2012 at 11:09 PM
No power on upper mske field yet. Peco keeps changing estimates. Need to research this later.
TMFCAQ November 02, 2012 at 12:12 AM
I'm wondering why Upper Makefield isn't turned on, when most of Newtown IS. I'm thinking it's because there's less people in UM in which case, okay, that makes sense. BUT, we don't have public water out here so it makes a power failure tough. PECO told us Oct 31st, 11pm. Then November 1st, 10pm. NOW, it's November 3rd, 10pm. I work in Lawrenceville, NJ, and they were back up yesterday. I wonder why Upper Make can't get power??
TMFCAQ November 02, 2012 at 12:13 AM
Masked.... I wonder why we tolerate PECO this way? Perhaps it's because once the power turns on, we forget and go about our lives. Yet here we are today.....
