UPDATE: About 14,000 in Bucks Still Without Power

All three of the county's electric suppliers still were working to restore electricity to all customers.

A week after Hurricane Sandy struck, about 14,000 Bucks County electric customers still were without power.

As of Monday at 5:20 p.m., 2,228, Met Ed customers in northeast Bucks and 820 PPL customers in northwest Bucks were out of power.

In Central and Lower Bucks, about 11,000 PECO customers still were without power as of Monday.

In PECO's territory, service for most remaining customers is expected to be restored by midnight Monday. However, the company noted that some "customers in the most damaged and isolated areas may be without electric service until next week."

Met Ed made progress in Bucks County in recent days by energizing the Ferndale Substation on Sunday evening and the Ottsville Substation on Monday, according to an update from the company given to State Rep. Marguerite Quinn's office.

Heavy damage was identified on circuits out of the Ottsville and Bridgeton substations. Met Ed crews were concentrating on Ottsville, Ferndale, Tinicum, Durham and Riegelsville on Monday, the company said.

Power restoration began in Ottsville on Saturday, Quinn said, and about half of the customers in that area had been restored by 9 a.m. Monday. That figure was expected to increase to 85 percent by the end of the day, she said.

Geologists suspect major eruption, on same http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com scale as Pompeii, is due in next couple of centuries. http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net Keen as they were to reflect on the transience of human http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com existence, early visitors to the site were often decidedly disappointed http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com with the place. It was, frankly, a wreck.It looked, as one disgruntled http://www.coachoutletaol.org tourist observed, as if it had been destroyed in enemy action. Well, http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net of course it looked like that. It had been devastated by a violent http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com volcanic eruption.It wasn't until the houses began to be rebuilt http://www.coachfactoryoutlettx.com and reroofed around 1900 that Pompeii became something like the http://www.coachfactoryonlinefc.org ancient city we now visit - until, that is, the http://www.coachoutletwy.com site was heavily bombarded by the Allies in World http://www.coachoutletonlineybw.com War II (in what really was enemy action.
