Lights Back On? Let Patch Know!

Like He-Man, we want to hear you say, 'I have the power!'

Remember: This list is NOT comprehensive. It's based on your comments. So, if you're reading and have power, let us know!

It's time for a little hope.

By Wednesday, power was starting to come back on for some in the area. As of 9 p.m. Oct. 31, Morristown was down to 33% without power. Township was down to 70%, Morris Plains was  still high but lower than before at 84%.

So, to that end, we're making a switch. We want you to let us know where there is power. That is, where has power been restored. Feel free to leave your comments below and, as always, be sure to name your street and town. And, this time around, let everyone know when power went back on where you live.

We're all in this together!

Does Budd St have power??

Awesome! Saw the transformers exploding over there from my window over on Hillcrest. It looked bad over there. Hopefully they are headed this way.

Power restored on Molly Stark Drive @ 10:30PM. Only 72 hours v. 7+ days after Irene and Snow'tober storms. Thank you! Hoping the rest of the town and township are restored ASAP.

Fairview place came on last night about 10ish
Aaron Dunn November 02, 2012 at 12:01 PM
Fairview place does, which is the other end of Budd
ML November 02, 2012 at 12:45 PM
That includes all of Fairview Pl right???? I think my cable is still out so my landline still isn't working, and I'm still a little scared to go home to no power.

Anyone have power along Woodland in Convent Station?
Boris Zakharin November 02, 2012 at 01:45 PM
Power back on Cattano Avenue Morristown as of 8 PM last night
Nancy November 02, 2012 at 02:52 PM
What about Washington Ave by Jacob Ford apartments? Last year we were one of the last ones to get power back.
Mary Ann November 02, 2012 at 02:53 PM
Power coming back on all around us. Looks like mountainside drive will be last to have power restored just like the last two times.
Diana Pilas-Chereches November 02, 2012 at 03:28 PM
I feel your pain Mary Ann. I'm on Wetmore Ave by the dead end and we are still without power. It seems like the rest of Morristown has gotten their power back. I guess we will be the last ones in town. They finally did come to remove the tree on Ogden and cleared a path on Wetmore, so hopefully the Utility Crews aill be there soon.

Is there power on Alpine Drive yet? Left same post yesterday with no reply.
Aaron Dunn November 02, 2012 at 06:32 PM
I would think so, but I haven't talked to anybody else. I don't hear any generators running today. My cable and internet are up and running, too. I have Verizon FiOS.
Boris Zakharin November 02, 2012 at 07:09 PM
Just got an email to expect intermittent outages in currently powered areas while other grids are being put online. Apparently yesterday's Cattano outage was due to this. JCP&L says that any deliberate outage will not last longer than 4 hours.
Mary Ann November 02, 2012 at 07:32 PM
Hope it happens for you. Believe it or not our power line are underground but we seem to lose power more often and for longer than most. We think our problem is either on skyline or mt Kemble and there doesn't seem to be any action going on at either place.

Is the YMCA in Cedar Knolls open? Have power?
sicupo November 02, 2012 at 10:33 PM
Normandy Parkway + Kenilworth Road have power again!
Kim November 02, 2012 at 10:52 PM
They just restored power on Deer Chase, Evans Farm and Raskin Roads. Yahoooo! Next crew I see gets donuts and a Box o'Joe
Kim November 03, 2012 at 12:17 AM
And that's Morris Township above (sorry)
HU November 03, 2012 at 12:51 PM
They said that they need to have tree guys to work first... They cannot do anything until tree guys take of trees... They don't work together... On Hillcrest, JCP&L guys were waiting for degree guys at Locust.... First to work on the one near Locust, then go down to the big one by Washington... If "inthepark" is correct, We, Hillcrestan" are push backed... We need TREE GUYS!!!!!! TREE GUYS HELP!!!!!!

I live about a block or so into the township up from the Quick Mart and Fire Station, however I have been away on business through the whole event and now in limbo coming back due to lack of Power. Does anybody else have any info on western age electricty in Morris township?
Liza McIntyre November 04, 2012 at 11:46 AM
Has the power been restored on Wetmore yet? I live at 44 and my family left because it was so cold. Now we aren't sure when to return. Thanks so much!
Angela Lorenz Klein November 04, 2012 at 02:29 PM

Patricia November 04, 2012 at 07:17 PM
Thompson Ave in Dover got power Thursday around 4pm and lost it again yesterday (Saturday) around 5pm. Does anybody know what's going on? I thought it was deliberate, but it's 215pm Sunday afternoon and still nothing....
Jason November 05, 2012 at 12:00 AM
Does anyone know if James Street has power ?
Helen Schellberg November 05, 2012 at 04:58 PM
Not up the street - still out
Kathy November 05, 2012 at 07:39 PM
I drove by today and the power remained out for the last block of wetmore ave. Has anyone heard about when it might be restored? As far as i can tell, the transformers on Ogden haven't been fixed.
