State Websites Appear To Be Back Online
The state’s official websites appear to be operating normally this morning following a power failure at the state’s primary data center Thursday took down most state agency computers and websites.
Power was restored by Thursday afternoon, but technicians worked through the night to bring agency websites, email systems and computers back online.
Treasury Department Spokesman William Quinn says the outage happened around 2 p.m. Thursday and affected many sites and computer systems used by the public, such as the nj.gov home page and the website for unemployment benefits.
Quinn says technicians will monitor the systems and be ready to act if there are any residual problems Friday.
Motor vehicle offices statewide had to close early Thursday, after their computer system crashed.
