I work on Schoenersville Rd just North of 22 and we lost electric around 10. It was back on around 12:30, but not to worry, I company did NOT feel that it was necessary to send us home or anything...

So - unless there is another power outage here in our area, MCall has it wrong.

I live in Lehigh Township and we have Met-Ed there. Our power goes out a few times a week, so I'll be surprised if I get home tonight and have power.

Well, I'm not in Palmer twsp, and my power went out. I'm in Easton, I guessed they missed an area. They shouldn't let them squirrels drive them dump trucks.

Gee, this is important news, and Mike from Lehigh township is right, with Med ed the power goes out if someone sneezes.

I live in Moore township and Mike is right if a bird lands on the wire the power goes out. I have met ed on speed dial. its really a shame considering what I pay for electric, I am lucky to get a meter reader to the house.

I guess you don't remember back a few months when a squirrel really did cause a large power outage.

Its been two days since we lost power. Driving around Bath and Nazareth not one service truck from Meted or verizon was seen anywhere. I know there are not many of us in the Point Phillips area but there are elderly customers that are suffering.
