Roads Passable, Power Outages Widespread

Approximately 5,839 residents are without power after yesterday's nor'easter, according to JCP&L

This morning, Lacey residents woke up to snow, slick roads and widespread power outages.

Although the roads were a “mess” this morning with traffic issues due to the road conditions, they are now “passable and in good condition” with the exception of many down wires and tree limbs, Township Administrator and Municipal Clerk Veronica Laureigh said.

“Residents need to be careful when driving on the roads due to down wires and they may not be visible due to snow on some of the side streets,” she said.

Last night, a portion of Lacey Road west of the parkway had to be closed due to a tree across the road.

“The trees are brittle and heavy from the snow,” she said.

As a result, there are more power outages. JCP&L is reporting approximately 5,839 residents without power. Prior to the snowstorm, 1,906 still remained without power due to Hurricane Sandy and JCP&L expected restoration by Saturday, Nov. 10. An updated date is not currently available on the state's Hurricane Sandy Information Center.

Report power outages to JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTS and ask for a confirmation number from the representative.

Had to run some errands a few minutes ago. Traffic signals were out at Haines & Manchester. Police Officer directing traffic. Get to Haines and Rt 9. Traffic Signals out. Police Officer sitting in his car too lazy to direct traffic. Which is really needed as the drivers on Rt. 9 would not stop. Why send an officer to an intersection if he isn't going to do anything?

Still no power on end of Clairmore Avenue. I have a neighbor living there who has no heat. Are there generators available for those who refuse to leave their homes? What about people who got their heat back and have generators could loan them to people who can not afford one.
