Reality Check: JCP&L Street-by-Street Restoration List

Is JCP&L's estimated restoration list accurate for your street? Power company says all power will be restored by Saturday.

The Township of Millburn has received the street-by-street power listing officials have been asking for from Jersey Central Power & Light.

To see when the company says your street is expected to get power, go to the town website. According to the list, the company estimates that all homes should have power back by Saturday. Currently, according to the power company's website, 321 homes remain powerless.

, who've been without power since , say they've been told by crews from as far away as Michigan and Alabama that they could not work on their homes until a privately hired electrician repairs connections at their houses.

And JCP&L's website says the the same thing, letting residents know that they need to hire electricians to repair damaged connections first.

Patch has also uploaded a PDF of the street-by-street list, but use the link to the township site if the PDF is difficult to read.

Mayor Sandy Haimoff cautions that the list might not be accurate because she's gotten a lot of misinformation from the company - what headquarters releases is not always what is happening in the neighborhoods.

If your power is out but the list says it's on or your power goes out again, call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877). It’s the only way JCP&L knows your power is out.

Also, as always, please share with us what's going on in your neighborhood.

I live on Sinclair Terrace and fortunately, we have had our power on almost the whole time. However, a live wire is down across the street on the reservation side of our street which supplies a street lamp. Someone hung a yellow ribbon on it as a precaution not to mess with the many downed branches, trees, etc entangling it which extends into the street. Tuesday night there were power trucks here from out of state, used search lights in that area as if they were assessing the downed wires and spent the next day restoring power to the homes in the area without power. I assumed that they would fix the downed wire once all the homes in the area were back up since this must have been a low priority. They rode past the area multiple times on Wednesday and even a few times Thursday, left the area and did not repair the downed wire. It is still down and I assume it is live since I have to reason to believe otherwise. The entangled brush, tree limbs and hangers that are in that area are creating a hazard for the traffic on our street. I realize that this is not a well traveled street but there are people who park on this street to access the reservation as well as the residents of the street who use the road. The 'herbaceous materials' cannot be moved off the street until the wires are repaired. I am feeling like we are stuck in a Catch 22 here until the workers return--whenever that might be!

Voters may initiate a referendum, is a direct vote in which an entire electorate is asked to either accept or reject a particular proposal. It is a form of direct democracy.
