JCP&L currently anticipates that the remaining customers without power will be restored by late this evening. Approximately 55,000 JCP&L customers were originally affected by the storm, with the hardest hit areas in Monmouth, Ocean and Burlington counties.
Customers who are without power are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report their outage or click the "Report Outage" link on www.firstenergycorp.com. Customers should immediately report downed wires to 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or their local police or fire department. Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity. Extra caution should be exercised in areas where downed wires may be tangled in downed tree branches or other debris.
