MORRISTOWN, NJ - As the power outage continues in Morristown, Mayor Dougherty has called upon the community to help one another.

"There are a lot of houses and neighborhoods that didn't loose power", said Dougherty. "If you have a generator and you want to share your generator with someone that's out of power, please let us know."

Dougherty said other towns are doing this "share" program. He asked those who want to "share" to call the town at 973-292-6629.

He also encouraged those without power to reach out so that the mayor's office can connect people who have a generator with those who are in need of one.

"I would like to see that program get put together", he said. "You know this isn't going to be the end of this. There are going to be more storms. They are talking about alot of hurricanes over the next month, month and a half, two months".

"We have to be prepared, but we will talk more about it", he said.
