05:06 EDTFEJCP&L crews restore service to 60 % of customers affected by Hurricane Sandy
Jersey Central Power & Light, or JCP&L, with the largest complement of line and forestry crews in its history, has restored power to 60 percent of 1.2M customers affected by Hurricane Sandy. Since yesterday, crews restored power to 125,000 customers. Another 135,000 are expected to be restored by Monday. More than 700,000 customers have had power restored since the massive storm passed. About 470,000 customers remain without power, most of whom live in Morris, Monmouth and Ocean counties. About 6,800 professionals, including 3,500 linemen and 1,400 forestry workers, are focused on restoring power to the remaining customers. An additional 200 linemen are expected today and tomorrow. "Our response to Hurricane Sandy is the largest mobilization of crews and manpower in the history of JCP&L. Before the storm, we amassed an army of linemen and have doubled their number as more resources became available. Don Lynch, President of JCP&L commented: "Everyone at JCP&L understands the hardships and frustration of extended power outages. JCP&L continues to focus on completing restoration to police and fire departments, water and sewage treatment plants, hospitals, schools, and gas stations. Many of these priority customers require extensive repairs to connect. Many of the remaining customers will be restored by Nov. 7. Customers in harder-hit areas can expect to be restored throughout the following week. In some areas where roads, infrastructure, homes and businesses were destroyed, restoration is currently impossible. JCP&L is a subsidiary of FirstEnergy (FE).
