Two weeks after superstorm Sandy, almost all power was restored to Millburn Monday evening.  Jersey Central Power and Light website reported only 12 customers remained without power on Monday.  

However, multiple residents reported a power loss at 3 a.m. again this Tuesday morning. 

JCP&L's websites estimates 31 customers are without power as of  6.m. Yet, residents who called were told about 250 homes were affected. 

The company has not responded to the cause or when power will be restored. 

More information to come. 

Let us know in the comment when your power returns and what area you live in so the rest of the community knows. Also add it in the Google document Patch used Joshua created.  

JCP&L advised customers to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (888-544-4877) to report their outage again.

Power to all Millburn schools have been restored as of Sunday evening.  More information about busing, making up days and lunch programs can be found here

The township website tells residents if service was ripped from their home to call an electrician to restore service in their home.

The company reported it restored services to 99 percent of its customers affected by superstorm Sandy and the recent Nor'easter on Sunday. 

"This is part of the storm restoration when it becomes labor intensive because you are replacing poles and wires, while bringing back a small number of customers with each repair," JCP&L official, Mark Nitoski, said.

Since superstorm Sandy hit, Mayor Sandra Haimoff said the power company has been difficult to work with and provided little or incorrect information. She brought the township's complaints to the governor's office twice.

The Short Hills Association praised the mayor for the work she put in over the last two week

Once power fully returns the township will address its issues with JCP&L, Haimoff said.
