RED BANK, NJ: Like a large part of the State, Red Bank was impacted by the effects of Tropical Storm Isaias. Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order #174 declaring a State of Emergency as a result of the weather event.
Red Bank experienced a series of power disruptions during the storm and approximately 60% of Jersey Central Power & Light customers in Red Bank were left without power after the storm. Electricity is provided by JCP&L and the Borough does not have oversight or jurisdiction of the utility companies.
While the Borough does not serve the electricity, officials advocate for the community and we are exhausting all options for speedy restoration. Many trees, limbs and wires are down and we have notified JCP&L of this damage.
However, in order to make sure all outages are responded to and damage assessed by JCP&L, please continue to report individual power interruptions to JCP&L (1-888-LIGHTSS). JCP&L provides outage and electric infrastructure information, including estimated restoration times, on their "Power Center" website by clicking HERE.
As of August 6, 2020, JCP&L is reporting 2,744 customers remain without power in Red Bank after restoring power to approximately 1,147 customers today. They have provided a global estimated restoration time of August 11, 2020, 11:30 p.m. for most customers.
