POLL: How Would You Rate Your Electric Company’s Response to the Storm?
The clean up from Monday afternoon's storms is well underway, but of course, there are still tons of homes and businesses that are in the dark this afternoon.
Of course, it can be frustrating to be without power or cable after a storm. It's extra frustrating if you feel like your utility company isn't responding to or addressing your concerns. We've heard from several people today that their electric company isn't even offering a restoration timeline at this point.
So we were wondering, how would your electric company's response to last night's storms? Sound off by voting below using a 1-5 rating (with 1 being horrible and 5 being great).
Of course, we understand JCP&L, PECO, and PSE&G are all working extra hard today to restore service in the affected areas. Today's rain has certainly not helped officials clean up the scene, and many areas remain flooded or even unreachable at this point for officials.
As of Tuesday afternoon, it's estimated that more than 200,000 customers remain in the dark in New Jersey. Additionally, PECO is reporting that 7,400 customers in Bucks County are still waiting for their lights to come back on.
Having said that, it's worth noting that we saw a fantastic response from our local emergency responders. We're sure they were busy responding to calls last night, but we are appreciative of their efforts to keep us all safe from the moment the storms struck through the cleanup. Your efforts in responding to everything from fires to down traffic lights did not go unnoticed.
