MADISON, NJ - Mayor Conley provided an update after Tropical Storm Isaias.
"We started the day with fairly calm weather and ended it with beautiful evening, but in between we were hit with a very intense, fast moving storm", said Conley. "The path of Isaias had shifted from the forecast, putting Madison on the windy side of the eye, but our teams were ready."
"Property damage and power outages were less than the October tornado", he said. "And far better than Superstorm Sandy".
"Immediately after the storm, JCP&L reported over 130,000 outages in Morris County", said Conley. "Madison had approximately 500 outages. Our JCP&L feeder lines had a few hiccups that caused lights to flicker but they held otherwise".
The final outage should be repaired tonight or tomorrow morning at the latest, he said.
"This is another time to be thankful to have our own electric utility", he said.
