There is rightful concern occurring about the storm that is anticipated to start tonight. I want to assure you that the borough is prepared. From Brian Ace:
”We are just finishing up fixing our equipment from the last storm, plows, hydraulic lines etc. Our snow dumps are clear, our chains are on plows and on the trucks. We have plenty of salt and we will be splitting up into 12-hour shifts until we are all done cleaning up - bring on the snow!”
Be safe and be aware. PennDOT is already putting restrictions on the roads.
Update for those still without power. Share this please with anyone you know outside of Stroudsburg. This is from the Utility company. See below:
The purpose of this update is to bring you up to speed on Met-Ed’s overall service restoration progress, and to discuss some of the challenges we continue to face in restoring your communities to service. As a recap, the storm impacted almost 214,000 customers. To date we have restored over 178,000 customers to service. Met-Ed pers...onnel have been working 16 hours on and 8 off since the storm began and help is also being provided by additional FirstEnergy resources and contractors.
This update is targeted specifically to municipalities in Northampton, Bucks, Monroe and Pike Counties. Regarding the estimated times for restoration, we are projecting a restoration time of 11;00pm Wednesday. Keep in mind that many customers will be restored before that time. The aforementioned counties absorbed a great deal of damage making assessment and repair extensive and time consuming.
The hardest hit areas were the mmunicipallities of Dingman and Lehman Townships in Pike County. The winter storm caused extensive damage to the power lines that provide electricity to those areas. We have multiple crews working over 26 miles to make repairs to the lines as fast as possible. Damage to lines serving those areas has caused more than 16,000 customers not have power. It is a very difficult repair job and it takes time to safely make this type of repair. Three fully functional staging areas were set up and have been very busy. Overall, we have 700 line workers in the field and will be working around the clock until everyone has their lights back on.
Safety is our first priority in everything we do. We also make a point in all our public communications to urge customers to stay clear of downed lines, report their outages, use our mobile app and to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest restoration information.
Attached I have included a ( revised ) customer outage information by municipality as of 10:00pm tonight. Please keep in mind The electrical system is a dynamic situation and numbers may fluctuate based on various events occurring throughout the day. I will update the numbers in this format from now to the completion of this event.
Manager External Affairs
I just got off a conference call with the utility companies about the power outages that are still out in Stroudsburg. They are still assessing the damage, as this was one of the worst. When we call, we hear our power will not be back on until March 7. They are still standing by that deadline, but hope to restore it sooner. They are going to call me when they get close and I will keep everybody updated as I hear back from the utility companies. Thank you for your patience and I’m so sorry to those without power.
