JCP&L reminds customers without power that free water and ice is still available at local supermarkets (Shop Rite, Acme, Weis, and Kings).

Hoses are available at each of the four township fire companies for residents on well water in need of water for toilets. Residents in need of water for this purpose are encouraged to take advantage of the non-potable water at these locations.

The township has been communicating storm related information on the township website (, Facebook page (Township of Randolph), Twitter (@RandolphTwpNJ), and when necessary, Swift 911. Residents who have not signed up for Swift 911 email, text, or cell phone alerts are encouraged to do so by visiting the township website and following the link on the right side of the home page.

Please be safe when using generators. Ideally, generators should only be connected professionally by a qualified electrician. While using one, be sure to keep the machine at a safe distance from any combustible materials (especially your home, shed, & garage), and do not face the exhaust towards, or pointed in the direction of, your home. Combustion from the generator motor produces carbon monoxide which can seep into the residence causing illness or worse. When adding fuel to a hot motor, be careful not to spill it on the hot engine parts. If anyone in your home experiences any of the most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning (headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, confusion), immediately evacuate them from the home and call 911.

Also, please continue to check on neighbors in need. If you have tried to contact a neighbor in town that you are concerned about and have been unsuccessful, please contact the Police Department.

Storm Recovery Update – March 9, 3 p.m.

JCP&L officials held another conference call this afternoon to update local mayors on the status of power restoration efforts. In the call, JCP&L advised that they have increased the number of field personnel in the area to over 5,000 workers. In addition, they have brought in additional supervisors and back office employees to provide support and direction to the field employees staged in the area. There are presently 79,000 customers still out of power in the region. JCP&L is reporting that the number of people out of power since Friday’s storm is estimated to be 10,000. The company expects to restore approximately 7,000 of those customers by the end of the day today, and to restore the remaining customers out since March 2 by Saturday evening. All remaining outages resulting from the March 7 storm will be addressed later in the weekend and into early next week. JCP&L expects that power will be restored for all customers on or before Wednesday, March 14.

Storm Recovery Update – March 9, 11 a.m.

JCP&L has advised that crews worked yesterday and overnight on restoring more customers who have been out since Riley (March 2 storm). They've also been addressing road closures and hazards from Quinn (March 7 storm). Work will continue 24/7, with more crews arriving today to join the existing 4,400+ workers.

More specific to Randolph, the JCP&L area manager advised that the focus for the remainder of today and tomorrow will be on restoring power to the customers who have been out since Friday, March 2. JCP&L reports that there are still approximately 1,000 outages in Randolph, the majority of which are from the March 2 storm. The town has requested a more specific list of the areas where crews will be assigned today and tomorrow. As that information is provided by JCP&L, it will be included in future advisories. JCP&L is anticipating that the majority, if not all of those who lost power last Friday will see it restored by Saturday night; those who lost it during or after Wednesday’s storm will see it restored by early next week at the latest.
