Everything happened with "Hurricane Sandy" as predicted: High winds, heavy rain, power outages.
The power outages appear to be the most perplexing situation for the superstorm. Otherwise, in general, the area was spared major damage.
"There's not the damage we could have had," said Palmerton Borough manager Roger Danielson in assessing the borough's situation this morning, following the overnight impact of the storm.
He said of problems in Palmerton, "By and large it's not too bad as a community as a whole."
