Halloween Weekend Nor’easter Aftermath

Photo credit: Jeff Mail

As the sound of generators and chainsaws are heard all over Central and North Jersey this morning, here is the Sunday aftermath from the Halloween Weekend Nor’easter that some are calling “Snowtober”. 

Total amounts of snow received on Saturday:  a coating to an inch along the shore, 3 to 6 inches in central New Jersey, 6-12 inches in northwest and northeastern New Jersey, and 10 to 20 inches in Passaic and Sussex counties.

Today’s sunshine will help plow and salting crews with snow removal today, but drivers should be on the lookout for refreezing and black ice tonight.

Power failures are massive from Maryland to Massachusetts with 2.3 million outages.

PSEG reports over 271,000 in Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Hudson, Union, Middlesex and Mercer Counties.

Here is a county breakdown of outages in the JCPL area:

Essex: 5, 000

Sussex: 40,000

Morris: 113,000

Warren: 23,600

Union: 17,000

Somerset: 17,000

Hunterdon: 35,000

Mercer County: 1,300

Monmouth County: less than 100

The utility companies have help with power companies from out of state helping them with the massive clean-up and restoration, but have stated that most power will be out until Monday, but some rural areas may not have power restored until Wednesday. 

On mass transit, the Morris, Essex and Montclair lines have been suspended, with other lines experience 30 minute delays.
