I think The Patch has been a great resource for getting information out to those of us who need it. Thanks so much.

When we l;ived up in Hamlin, NY the power company could provide a Street by Street Outage map, unlike CP&L that has a broad area and a standard message on all areas....

Agreed, Tom. Does anyone know anything about Red Bank Water Utility? Some of us in FH get our water from Red Bank.
