MontCo Declared a Natural Disaster Area
Written by Larry Roeder, Editor
2014-02-06

          Montgomery County officials issued a disaster declaration yesterday on the heels of a severe ice storm that left thousands without electricity.

          In addition to the massive power outages, the County's emergency call center fielded more than 4,000 calls on Wednesday.  The normal, average is 2,400 calls per day. 

          The disaster declaration could help the County recoup some of the costs, spent on the storm and its aftermath, from Federal and State governments.  It will also allow the County to bypass the bidding process to purchase items that might be needed to protect the welfare of residents, especially those who are still without power.  Emergency management personnel can take whatever appropriate actions are needed to protect the health, safety and welfare of county residents.

          More than 187,000 PECO customers in Montgomery County were without power on Wednesday.  As of Thursday morning, more than 100,000 were still without power.

          PPL reported less than 700 power outages remained in the Upper Perkiomen Valley and nearby areas as of Thursday morning and First Energy (Met-Ed) reported less than 100 outages remaining in nearby areas of Montgomery and Berks Counties.
