Hi

West Pikeland has been doing regular updates during Hurricane Irene. I am posting it here since nothing has come from West Vincent Township. Once there is a State of Emergency, the Township building should be staffed for any emergencies and to assist people. I saw nothing of the sort.

Note that there is DRY ICE is available at:
Genaurdi's, 542 Kimberton Road, Phoenixville, (610) 935-3050

I ASK THAT YOU PLEASE LET THOSE WITHOUT POWER AND INTERNET KNOW THIS INFORMATION.

Best wishes

Chickenman

following roads are closed:
