Dinniman: Contact My Office with Storm-Related Issues
WEST CHESTER (June 24) – State Senator Andy Dinniman encouraged residents who continue to be impacted by last evening’s severe thunderstorms and have difficulty obtaining information to contact his West Chester District Office
“I know how difficult it is to be without power for an extended period of time and how frustrating it can be when you cannot get straight answers,” Dinniman said. “If you are still without power and don’t know when it will be restored, or if there’s a large tree down on your street and you don’t know who to call, please feel free to contact my office.”
“My staff and I will do our best to assist you in getting the information needed to help ensure that storm-related issues, like power outages and road closures, are resolved as soon as possible,” he added.
Residents can contact Dinniman’s district office by calling (610) 692-2112 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The office, located at historic One North Church Street (corner of Church and Market Streets) in downtown West Chester is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Dinniman said his office has been in contact with PECO officials, PennDOT representatives, Chester County emergency services and local municipal leaders in order to coordinate a comprehensive response to the storm-related damage.
As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 20 percent (48,700) of PECO’s 214,100 customers in Chester County were still without power due to the severe thunderstorms and high winds that toppled trees and power lines Tuesday evening.
According to PECO, most residents are expected to regain power by Friday, but some will not see service restored until the weekend.
Residents should report outages to PECO by calling 1-800-841-4141.
“My office is open and we are available to you as a center for information and resources,” Dinniman said. “Again, please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, concerns or storm-related issues you may encounter.”
