I must say that the Hatboro PD was terrific last night in their immediate response to my report of downed trees and hanging wires. PECO was here this morning and the last 50 Hatboro residents now have their power back. PECO told us just last night that it would be Tuesday morning before we have electricity...Thank you HatPD!
