Almost All of Morris Plains, Township Without Power Tuesday

Three-quarters of Morristown, 87 percent of Morris County in the dark.

As the area woke up on Tuesday, many were waking up without power.

Over 170,000 Morris County residents serviced by JCP&L were in the dark Tuesday morning, with almost the entirety of Morris Plains and Morris Township losing power as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

As of shortly after 9 a.m., about 94 percent of Morris Plains, 2,304 households, were without power according to the JCP&L outage map.

Over in Morris Township, 7,792 residents, 90 percent, remain in the dark.

Morristown fared well, comparatively. Only 74 percent of its households, or 7,091 of them, were without power as Tuesday morning.

The Morristown Office of Emergency Management issued a notice Tuesday morning advising people that, even if it appears the majority of Sandy's presence has passed, "travel is not advised."

If you do not heed their advice and find somewhere open, let us know.

In the meantime, if you have not yet done so, those without power should let JCP&L know by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS. Also let Patch know by leaving a comment here. Patch will continue to provide updates as they become available.
