11:30 am -- Message from Morris County OEM:
Things have been extremely busy for our Morris County 911/Communications Center, Municipal Dispatch Centers, First Responders across all disciplines, Shade Tree and DPWs throughout Morris County. Currently, we have over 19,000 Morris County customers without power. We have had several calls with representatives of JCP&L to review critical infrastructure as well as our special needs clients. JCP&L continues to have numerous crews spread out throughout Morris County working on repair and restoration issues and they have been very responsive to our calls and issues. We anticipate that the winds will decrease over the next few hours. We are hopeful that this will allow JCP&L to focus on the repair and restoration process without increasing outage totals.
