WARREN, NJ - The Warren Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the Warren Police Department are working with JCP&L and our Somerset County partners.
Warren Township has provided the following update on Friday afternoon:
- Mt. Bethel Road and Mt. Horeb Road opened to the public at 3:00 p.m.when JCP&L completed the restoration.
- Mt. Horeb Road and Skyline Drive were temporally repaired by JCP&L on Thursday; however, the temporary fix failed. Unfortunately, at 11:30 a.m. today, a truck driving down Mt. Horeb Road drove through low hanging wires and snapped the pole while taking down all the wires. This will require a significant restoration. Mt. Horeb Road is closed as a result. To the best of the Township’s knowledge, this outage is affecting portions of Greenwood Meadows, the Mt. Horeb Road area, and neighboring streets.
- JCP&L estimates that the circuit serving King George Road, south of Moutainview Road will be returned to operation by 11:30 p.m. this evening.
- JCP&L crews and their contractors have been observed in Warren Township, and are actively investigating the damages that are causing the outages.
- The Warren Police Department is surveying damages to identify outages and report them to JCP&L.
- Residents are reminded to report your outage to JCP&L to ensure that their information is accurate. Township officials cannot lobby on your behalf with the power company unless you have reported your outage. Please help us help you.
- JCP&L has arranged free ice and water to be available to their customers at the Kings Supermarket.
- Mayor Mick Marion has contacted the JCP&L government liaisons to ensure that Warren is not overlooked and that power is restored on an expeditious basis.
