Update from the Mayor 3/9/18:
Latest update from JCPL as follows. I am in continual contact with our area manager and will update specifics when made available to me.
JCP&L Update – Morning of March 9, 2018
JCP&L has established an estimated time of restoration of 11:30 p.m. Saturday, March 10, for customers in Northern New Jersey who remain out of service from the first storm, Riley.
We expect those impacted by the second storm, Quinn, to be restored as
· Central New Jersey: 11:30 p.m. Sunday, March 11
· Northern New Jersey: 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 14
We know estimated times of restoration are very important to your constituents. We continue to work on local estimates and will update our outage maps as those estimates are established.
We also are bringing in more than 400 additional workers to assist with the effort, bringing our total storm workforce to more than 5,000.
Thus far, these storms have caused more than 465,000 customers to lose power, and we have restored more than 385,000 to service as of this morning, with about 80,000 total remaining out, including about 10,000 in northern New Jersey who remain out of service since the first storm hit.
As always, please contact your area managers with specific questions or concerns. Thank you.
