Trick or Treating Postponed in Northampton Township
Northampton Township has decided it best for the safety of our Township’s children and residents that Halloween Trick-or-Treat activities are postponed to Wednesday, November 7. According to the latest PECO estimates, at least 70% of homes in the Township are without power and storm damage has been extensive and widespread. Many areas have trees lying against power lines, and dangling transformers that PECO crews have yet to reach. PECO estimates that power may not be restored to many homes until midnight Friday. Some residents may not have power until after the weekend.
The many downed trees that the Public Works Department has yet to address are unprecedented. While roads are now passable, significant amounts of debris on street and in yards creates an unacceptable hazard for our Trick-or-Treaters. It was for these reasons that it was deemed best to postpone Trick-or-Treat activities until Wednesday, November 7.
