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.

With a little planning and sacrifice you wouldn't be without power ...think about the story about tha ant and th grasshopper ....If people had put in NG or prophane generators in their homes they would not be without heat or electricty ...your kid would be proud of your self relience .....read AynRand and leard a thing ot two about not having to rely on governmant .....

Dentss, I hope you're being sarcastic. Those things are expensive. A small system natural gas system that automatically cuts in on loss of power was quoted to my sister at $1600. I have a gasoline generator that cost $300 5 years ago and does the same thing. Alas, a little noisier. So I shut it down about 10pm so I and the neighbors can get some sleep.

Michael ...no I wasn't.. it just depends upon your priorities my is making sure my family is safe as I can make it ....relying on others to supply my energy I learned long ago is foolish same with the police keeping you safe in your home .people will come to understand that relying on the gov't or other agencies is just what our government wants people dependent on them ...what a great way to control the masses .think od a generator as a investment .....in your family

Confusing how power is turned on and you begin to think you have been overlooked. We continuel to check our office at 34 Sycamore Ave. , Sycamore Commons Condo Association. At 7 PM this evening we have found that Building #3 got power at 7 AM however buildings #1 and #2 no power. We found that the RR station and their parking lights on, the townhouses behind us on, Builders General on, Soverign Bank on, Ayers Lane on, all of Sycamore Ave. on,. We are the only two buildings in area no power, did they forget to turn switch on? reported again to JCP & L and Mayor to please check this out, not making any sense and we need to be up and running after two weeks. Clients and patients of these professional buildings are in need of our services.
