13 Feb 2015: Very High Winds this Weekend – Be Blackout Ready

We just got a heads up from Bucks County Emergency Management that this weekend will be extremely windy with bands of heavy snow squalls. The likelihood of localized power outages is high.

Met-Ed has put extra crews and equipment on standby, but be ready for power outages that could last anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

If you’re lacking inside shelter in Upper Bucks County during periods of extreme, life-threatening weather (temperature of 26°F or below) between December 1 and March 31, your neighbors and friends are ready with an Upper Bucks Code Blue Shelter

Salem Mennonite Church (41 East Cherry Road, Quakertown, PA 215.536.1223) from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM the following morning.

They have a hot meal and breakfast for you as well as shelter.
