Nor'easter Pushes Back Power Restoration for Little Silver
JCP&L tells the borough's mayor that all residents should have power by Sunday.
An update from Little Silver Mayor Robert C. Neff, Jr.:
JCP&L continues to slowly bring power back to Little Silver. The authorities we speak with regularly at the electric company advise that about two thirds of Little Silver customers were restored to power on Wednesday, but that full restoration is not expected until Sunday. As of late Wednesday morning, there were 807 customers still without power. Crews are in town working, and power continues to be restored sporadically. The Borough is regularly in contact with JCP&L, which advises that it is unable to provide exact dates and times for particular developments, buildings or streets.
JCP&L advises that it was delayed in returning Little Silver to power because all three of its substations, and all five of the circuits running from those substations, were damaged. It has now moved through those repairs and is working on the individual lines and transformers in town.
Please turn off all circuit breakers prior to power being restored. When power is restored, turn breakers on one by one.
