MORRISTOWN, N.J. –A majority of those who lost power to winter storm Riley on March 2 had their power restored by late last night, Jersey Central Power & Light said this morning in a press release.

The company said it expects the majority of the remaining 22,000 customers that are without power to be restored by late tonight.

While JCP&L is reporting this morning that it has more than 8,000 customers without power in Morris County, the number in Hunterdon has dropped to about 438 customers. The company’s outage map shows that many Hunterdon customers will have their power restored by the end of the day tomorrow.

JCP&L says it has a small army of utility personnel involved in restoring power, including more than 6,200 line workers, hazard responders and assessors, forestry crews, job dispatchers, and electrical contractors.

Many have been working 16-hour days, JCP&L says. The company has set up four staging sites -  including one in Hunterdon and others in in Essex, Morris and Sussex counties - to handle the influx of outside workers.
