About 8,000 Peco subscribers in lower Bucks County were without power briefly on Tuesday afternoon due to an equipment issue at a substation, according to Peco spokesman Greg Smore.

The communities affected included Bensalem, Hulmeville, Langhorne, Middletown and Penndel, Smore said.

According to Smore, the outages began around 1:30 p.m. But by 3:00 p.m., the Peco outage map showed less than 50 subscribers without power.

Smore said the cause of the outages remained under investigation.

Just under three weeks ago, more than 700,000 people lost power across the region due to a crippling ice storm. It took days for the utility to restore power to parts of Bucks, Chester, Mongtomery and Delaware Counties.
