SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Tropical Storm rumbled through New Jersey on Tuesday, leaving many residents in the dark and with a mess to clean up. Quite a few sections of Spotswood remain without power. JCP&L crews are working on getting the electricity back on. Mayor Ed Seely is reporting that many residents may see their power back on by Wednesday afternoon. However, complete restoration may also take an extended time period. The mayor provided residents with a brief update today. His letter to Spotswood residents reads as follows:

Residents of Spotswood,

Yesterday’s storm brought incredible damage and great havoc to our community. Entire sections of the Borough are currently without power. If you are in a section without electricity, as am I, please know that I have reached out to JCP&L and was told by their authorities that power could be restored by as early as this afternoon, or it could be as long as a few days. Their crews are working hard to get everyone back online, but patience will be required. Please take whatever measures are necessary to maintain your health and safety.
