It’s been a full 8 days since the historic “Snowtober” storm that brought 10 to 20 inches of heavy wet snow to central and north Jersey.  About 10,000 residents remain without power this morning.

Here are the latest power related headlines:

  • Gov. Chris Christie ended automated phone calls from JCP&L that featured a message that their power had been restored, when it actually wasn’t.
  • Christie set a deadline yesterday for full restoration of power by JCP&Lby midnight tonight.
  • The utilities have not mentioned of any restitution to customers who have suffered damage, had to stay in hotels or lost food.
  • Tomorrow, damage-assessment teams will tour New Jersey to decide what towns will qualify for federal disaster assistance.

JCP&L has told customers still without power to call  (888) 544-4877 to talk to a live operator.

While over 10,000 statewide remain with out power, here are the towns that have the greatest amount of outages a week after the storm:

  • Glen Gardner           252
  • Hampton                   187
  • High Bridge              157
  • Chester                      133
  • Chatham                   122
  • Morristown             118
  • Long Valley             102
