After 99 percent of Manalapan was restored with electricity yesterday, Winter Storm Athena came through the area and decided to wreak some havoc. High winds and heavy snow caused additional power outages yesterday and last night leaving almost 5,500 Manalapan Township residents without power.
The Manalapan Township municipal government has issued a statement declaring their awareness of the additional power outages and asks residents to directly contact Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) at 888-544-4877 or 800-662-3115 to report the outage. Please also call to report any downed power lines and please be sure to avoid any hanging wires.
The Manalapan Department of Public Works is working to clean up the streets within the Township and the Township asks residents to avoid any unnecessary travel.
