TELL US: Has Your Power Been Restored?

More than 13,000 still without power in the township; service slowly returning.

Power appears to be returning to residents, slowly.

JCP&L shows said in a release that it has restored power to about 20 percent of its customers in northern and central New Jersey and expects to have the majority of customers restored by Wednesday. It could take up to two weeks for customers in the hardest-hit areas to regain power, the company said.

"The damage from Hurricane Sandy far exceeds what we saw from Hurricane Irene or the October 2011 snowstorm," said JCP&L President Don Lynch in a release. "While we were better prepared for Hurricane Sandy, the damage rivals that experienced during Hurricane Katrina, one of our nation’s most devastating and expensive hurricanes."

How are things going for you? Are you still in the dark? Please share your stories in comments. And if you are having a really tough time, tell us and be sure to let us know what area you are in. Patch will forward the information directly to the mayor.

Thank you NJ EMT for your offer. Luckily the other half of the complex got power today but I really appreciate you extending help to me. I am happy to know I have such caring neighbors here in Parsippany. However, I continue to call JCPL and let them know that many of our Parsippany neighbors are still cold and freezing. Stay safe and warm everyone I will continue calling for you!
