TILDEN TWP., Pa. -

People looking to buy generators at Cabela's in Tilden Township were greeted by long lines that stretched outside the store!
We're told the store has been waiting all day for two trucks carrying the hundreds of generators and one of the trucks had broken down.

One person we talked to had been on line since 8:30 Friday morning.

"Waited for generator since 8:30 a.m.," said shopper Lauren Scollo. "We have a sump pump and we can't afford for our basement to flood. That's why I'm here... just to make sure... to have that piece of mind.if it doesn't get as bad as they expect."

"Hopefully the storm misses everybody and we'll all be happy," said Bill Smith who was waiting for a generator.

A manager at Cabela's says a shipment of generators arrived just a couple of hours ago.
