There are 20 crews working in Millburn/Short Hills and/or areas that affect power in Millburn Township.

Be aware:

  • These numbers may be affected by the current storm
  • The houses that will be brought up on power are due to fixes on main transmissions lines. More localized problems will still exist.
  • Since we were informed on Sunday that our infrastructure was operational it has taken until now to get a status report of any nature.

In addition, the following updates were announced by the Township of Millburn:

  • Residents are urged to remain at home or indoors if possible during the Nor'Easter hitting our area tonight.  There are many broken branches from Hurricane Sandy that are lodged high in trees.  Increased winds this evening could dislodge them.  Please use caution if you must be out. 
  • Leaf collection remains suspended until further notice.  Please do not place any leaves or debris on the streets.  With the impending snow and the need for emergency vehicles and plows to respond during the storm streets must remain open. 
  • The Millburn Free Public Library is open until 9PM tonight.  Anyone seeking warmth or charging capabilities can go to the Library.  It will open again at 9:30AM tomorrow and remain open until 9PM. 
  • The Police Department continues to have extra patrols monitoring those areas still without power.
  • The Recreation Commission meeting is cancelled for tonight 11/7.
