Heavy Snow Brings More Outages Back to Howell

Residents urged to report any outages

Heavy Snow Brings More Outages Back to Howell

At one point on Wednesday night JCP&L was reporting just a little over 1000 residents without power following Hurricane Sandy. After the first big snowstorm of the year that number had increased to more than 10 thousand by Thursday morning. 

Councilman Robert Nicastro said the township was aware of the power problems and was working to address the new set of issues brought about by the storm. "The snow amounts were much more than expected and reported," Nicastro said. "This has put extra stress on trees and power lines causing them to fall."

The councilman said that those people who had lost power with Hurricane Sandy and the new storm should call the utility to report their outages. "Please do not assume JCP&L knows and do not think that your neighbor having reported it is good enough," he said. 

Anyone with a power outage is encouraged to call 1-888-544-4877 or 1-800-662-3115.
