3/8/2018 - JCP&L Storm Update

JCP&L Storm Update

Morning of March 8, 2018

Yesterday’s new storm hit JCP&L’s service area very hard. We experienced power outages to 40,000 customers in Central New Jersey. Roads and access across the state remain a challenge, but crews are working as quickly and safely as they can, with our priority to respond to emergencies and to make areas safe.

A brief synopsis of our current priorities: 

1. New safety hazards, including downed wires and other damage that could endanger the public or impede first responders 
2. Clearing blocked roads to get access to areas with heavy damage
3. Then we will address each outage location starting with the largest number of customers affected first. 

We hope to have restoration estimates for all customers affected by early this afternoon.
