PECO Hits Rogers Road

Eagleville neighborhood gets a late visit from the utility truck.

This PECO truck along Rogers Road was a sight for sore eyes. Many on the road have been without power since Hurricane Sandy struck on Monday night.

Much of the area lost power around midnight on Monday, and by Tuesday morning the area was still in the dark. Those along the road, which is nestled just off of Trooper, connecting to Woodland Avenue, have been without heat and lights since.

One string of the road's homes had power back on as early as Tuesday afternoon, believed to be on a line that runs toward Trooper Road and West Norriton Township.

PECO estimated power to return to this rest of the street as late as Monday, 11 p.m., but trucks along the road as of 7:30 p.m. Saturday night were a welcome surprise.

While power has not yet been restored to the full road, those coming home to dark houses, including a brand new baby born on Halloween night, will be happy if they can work ahead of schedule.

Stay tuned to Patch for more on those still in need in the township. Lower Providence has many still without power as Saturday soon turns into Sunday, nearly a week after the devistating storm.

So happy that the rest of the road is closer to getting back on the grid!

This is day 8 without power. Peco left Bucks to last to get anything done in. They don't care about Bucks county. They don't care its supposed to be below freezing tonight - they're all snug in their houses in the warm. We get to shiver in the dark.
