Ironia Road is closed due to a downed tree and wires. There are also several areas where trees  or downed wires have been reported. Those include Mountainside and Iris Lane.More problems are expected throughout the afternoon, as the storm could dump up to three inches of snow an hour, leaving an accumulation of between 12 and 16 inches by the time it leaves this evening. White out conditions also could occur.

JCP&L officials held a conference call this afternoon to update local mayors on the status of power restoration efforts. In the call, JCP&L advised that they now have 4,000 employees and contractors in the area, including 2,000 line workers. There continues to be 25,000 customers still out of power region wide; Randolph is estimated at approximately 1,000 customers. Since Friday, power to 195,000 customers was restored, and over 1,700 roads were opened.

There are still a small number of roads in the area which remain closed. JCP&L is monitoring the current storm. Forecasts currently indicate significant snow amounts; however, high winds are not expected. JCP&L is receiving assistance from the State on snow plowing, to allow crews to continue to move safely to and from destinations during the storm.

The plan is for crews to continue to work throughout the day and evening, as long as conditions allow. Their priority remains to be those customers who lost power during the last storm. The only change to this plan would be if a main line comes down during the storm that feeds an area where customers have been out of power. If that should occur, the downed main line will become the higher priority

Customers can report outages by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or by clicking the “Report Outage” link at the JCP&L website.
