JCP&L: Power Restored by Saturday

Power crews are working today and tonight to help repair all electrical lines.

The Manalapan Township municipal government issued a statement indicating that 5,700 residents lost power Wednesday night as a result of the heavy snow and high winds of the Nor'easter.

Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) told the Township that power is expected to be restored by Saturday. Tree and line crews are working to bring back the electricity and will continue to work throughout tonight, according to the municipal government. If you have not yet reported your outage, please contact JCP&L at 888-544-4877 or 800-662-3115.

The Manalapan Township Department of Public Works are continuing to plow the streets and remove downed trees. If you see any hazards or trees blocking the local roadways, please call the Manalapan Township storm hotline at 732-446-3200.

The Manalapan Senior Center has been reactivated as an emergency shelter for anyone who needs a warm place to stay during this time.

Garbage collection will continue, but it has been delayed. The Township asks that you leave your garbage at the curb as it will be collected eventually. In regards to recycling pick-up, those with Tuesday/Friday collection will have recycling picked up on Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Please call the Manalapan Township storm hotline at 732-446-3200 for additional information, or send an e-mail to storm@mtnj.org.

I hope this is a heads up to getting this area updated with appropriately working substations and parts....and for the appropriate departments to get out there and remove trees and branches that will affect future outages.... due to overhead wiring...

Why are these seniors allowed to suffer without power at Covered Bridge. They have no appliances that run on Natural Gas. The average age there is 72 yrs old. This should be TOP PRIORITY

I lost my power again (this is the third time) yesterday evening at around 7:00 pm. Froze last night.
