Reality Check: JCP&L Street-by-Street Restoration List
Is JCP&L's estimated restoration list accurate for your street? Power company says all power will be restored by Saturday.
The Township of Millburn has received the street-by-street power restoration listing officials have been asking for from Jersey Central Power & Light.
To see when the company says your street is expected to get power, go to the town website. According to the list, the company estimates that all homes should have power back by Saturday. Currently, according to the power company's website, 321 homes remain powerless.
Residents, who've been without power since Saturday's snowstorm, say they've been told by crews from as far away as Michigan and Alabama that they could not work on their homes until a privately hired electrician repairs connections at their houses.
And JCP&L's website says the the same thing, letting residents know that they need to hire electricians to repair damaged connections first.
Patch has also uploaded a PDF of the street-by-street list, but use the link to the township site if the PDF is difficult to read.
Mayor Sandy Haimoff cautions that the list might not be accurate because she's gotten a lot of misinformation from the company - what headquarters releases is not always what is happening in the neighborhoods.
If your power is out but the list says it's on or your power goes out again, call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877). It’s the only way JCP&L knows your power is out.
Also, as always, please share with us what's going on in your neighborhood.
