Due to the power outages associated with Hurricane Sandy, my Doylestown district office is open but experiencing some technical difficulties with our phone and Internet service. My Harrisburg office is also open, and you can contact that office by calling 717-772-1413.
There is a Red Cross shelter set up at the Palisades High School that will remain open tonight. An ice truck, water truck (bring your own containers), meals and MREs are available at the Red Cross shelter.
The size and intensity of this storm have left our power providers scrambling for resources. Crews from many different states are in town to help with the massive cleanup and repair task left in Sandy’s wake.

Met-Ed customers may receive FREE ice and water from a list of local retailers. Click here for the list of retailers.
I have been meeting daily with Met-Ed, Palisades School District and with the emergency management coordinators from Riegelsville, Nockamixon, Tinicum, Durham and Bridgeton. I can assure you that many people, including utility crews, are working tirelessly to get your power back on. If you know of someone experiencing a health issue, including simply being cold in their home, please direct them to the Red Cross shelter.
