The power has still not restored for thousands of JCP&L customers in Warren and Sussex counties, a day after thunderstorms rolled through taking down a number of trees and power lines.

CP&L’s outage map showed 3,700 still in the dark in Sussex County and 4,379 in Warren County at 1:30 p.m.  Another 1,600 are out in Morris County. Sparta, Liberty,  Independence and Jefferson are especially hard hit but should all have power restored by 7 p.m.

Final repairs should be complete by noon on Saturday for some isolated customers according to a statement on the JCP&L website. The company says 40,000 were without power on Thursday night.

 

 

Several strong cells moved through the area yesterday with winds gusted to 50-60 MPH
