ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- Following Monday night's powerful storms that battered the area, an estimated 1,400 customer in the Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) service territory of Robbinsville remained without power according to Mayor Dave Fried in a statement released shortly before noon Tuesday. Most of the Public Service Energy and Gas (PSE&G) customers in the township have seen their power restored.
Fried said that he was briefed by JCP&L late Tuesday morning about the extensive damage caused by the storms.
"They are finishing their assessment of the damage in town. I expect it could take 24 hours or longer. That is my guess based on listening to the damage in the area. They have not made a guess yet," said Fried who added that "as soon as I have more information I will report in."
As a result of these on-going outages, the Township activated its Generator Exchange Program to assist those without power. A limited number of generators are available. Those who have a generator available that they are currently not using can constribute it to the exchange program.
Residents can contact the Robbinsville Township Police Department at (609) 259-3900 to schedule a generator pick-up or drop-off.
Residents are urged to check on the elderly, ill and pets.
