Power Restoration Update Release Date: November 08, 2012
JCP&L has reported to the Township that it anticipates having full restoration in the community completed by Sunday evening, November 11. Additional crews have been deployed by the company and should be visible working in the remaining sections of town where power is still out over the next several days. As of this morning approximately 40 percent of the community is still without power. The Township is extremely upset with the pace of the restoration effort and we have communicated this to JCP&L and the Governor's Office. We encourage residents who share our view to do the same.
On a related front, residents should survey their property carefully. DO NOT TOUCH DOWNED LINES. If service from the street to the home is disrupted, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to arrange for a repair. Residents should contact an electrician about the process of restoration of your electrical line. This repair may not be possible until power has been restored but it would help to expedite power to your home.
