WORKING IN BLUSTERY CONDITIONS  РWind gusts of up to 50 mph Saturday (Feb. 19, 2011) blew down power wires and knocked out electricity in parts of Limerick PA Township and elsewhere. Utility company crews were busy (above) restoring power and reconnecting cables at the intersection of Ridge Pike and Airport Road (below).

A portion of the roadway was blocked for a time, and limited to one lane (above), as repairs continued. Limerick Fire Company responded to the scene and helped to direct traffic. Nearby, and across the area, the strong winds toppled trees and brush (below), and in some cases required professional clean-up.
