Nearly All of Manalapan, Englishtown Without Power Tuesday Morning

JCP&L outage map shows 91% of Manalapan, 99% of Englishtown without electric.

Monmouth County's electrical grid took a severe hit by Hurricane Sandy and Marlboro and Colts Neck were no exception.

As of Tuesday at 9 a.m., 13,639 households in Manalapan out of the 14,962 Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) serves were without power, according to the company's New Jersey outage map. In Englishtown, 1,050 of 1,062 lost electric.

According to the outage map, 85 percent of Monmouth County, or 237,541 of 280,646 customers, is without power.

Residents should anticipate lengthy delays, JCP&L warned on its Web site.

"While assessment of the damage by utility workers will be ongoing, the slow-moving nature of the storm will slow the process and hamper the conduct of restoration work. Restoration times will be updated as the severity of the storm's impact on the electrical system is determined," the statement read.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations do not allow lineworkers to go up on poles to repair damage if winds are above 40 mph, which weather forecasts predict the gusts may be Tuesday.

Patty Went to Virginia to be with relatives. Couldn't do it without electric and water. Much of Manalapan does not have city water. With no electric to power well no water either

Power is still out in Covered Bridge. No idea when it will be back . Many elderly people are stuck in their units with no heat, hot water or even a cooking device. Covered Bridge is all ELECTRIC. With no power there is nothing.
