Emergency shelters have been set up in a Beaver County community where electrical service was disrupted Thursday afternoon.

County emergency dispatchers said warming shelters have been set up at the Unionville Church and the New Sewickley fire station because of the service interruption of electrical service in the township.

Duquesne Light spokesman Joseph H. Vallarian described the situation as “a small neighborhood outage” that affected around 300 customers.

Vallarian said a failed substation transformer is to blame for the problem. He estimated that service will be restored around 9 p.m.

Those in need of shelter should call Jim Schech at 724-624-1210 or the fire station at 724-774-6910.
