While Pennsylvania residents were spared from the devastating floods that Hurricane Sandy brought to New Jersey and New York in 2012, vicious winds still managed to inflict one of the largest power outages in the state’s history. As utility companies scrambled to restore electricity to more than 1.3 million Pennsylvania residents, many found themselves suddenly living in a world of dark chaos.
Losing electricity can be an expensive and stressful ordeal. Without energy to keep your refrigerator cold, hundreds of dollars worth of food could be lost. The three million residents who rely on well water are suddenly left without a drop. If you’re left without power for more than a few uncomfortable hours, the next expensive step may be to head to a hotel until problems are resolved at home.
