    Preparing for Power Outages | Office of Emergency Management
    March 5, 2018 Power outages happen year-round. They can be a temporary nuisance caused by a system failure or something that impacts our lives for days, resulting from a Nor'easter, Tropical Storm or other severe weather. Outages can also impact travel, bringing trees down on wires or roads that affect mass-transit or create hazardous driving conditions.

‘No Complaints’: From Life in Poland to Philadelphia

They settled in South Philly in a house with three or four other families at Seventh and Dickinson streets. Her mother started working at a factory while looking for an apartment.

They eventually found an apartment at Fourth and Tasker streets, and Kornsgold and her brother started school — which was detailed in the 1949 Exponent article.

    'No Complaints': From Life in Poland to Philadelphia - Jewish Exponent
    Rose Kornsgold got a call from her granddaughter a few months ago excitedly telling her, "Bubbe, you're famous!" Kornsgold's picture was featured in the Sept. 28, 2017 issue of the Jewish Exponent for a flashback story about 200 refugee children who began attending public schools in Philadelphia.
