Pike County Light & Power Company says they are aware of a widespread outage affecting all of Matamoras, Westfall, Milford Township, Milford Borough and Millrift. A dump truck ripped the 34.5 wires down by Perkins/Farm Plus, they said.

They now have a crew on-site. The dump truck broke two poles, and the three phase wires (the main circuit) were lying on top of the dump truck. The current estimated time of restoration is approximately 2:00 a.m. on 9/13/2022.

“This is a tricky repair and this estimated time of restoration may change as things progress,” PCLP said. “We will send another status update at approximately 7:00 pm.”
