At 12:48 PM: No Action At Belford Substation

JCP&L's Belford Substation @ 12:48 PM, August 31, 2011

Middletown Mayor Tony Fiore reports that he has a call into JCP&L’s Roberta Sheridan.  Fiore also said that Middletown GOP Chairman Peter Carton told him via email that “all available men” went to the Stone Church substation this morning and Navesink now has power. 

Is JCP&L’s electronic message telling you your power has been turned on and it hasn’t?

Call 888-544-4877.   Matawan Councilwoman Toni Marie Angelini (who is still single, available, real and spectacular) reports that a real live available person answers that line.

Not that Angelini got much satisfaction from calling.  In her Matawan neighborhood a crew “finished” repairs and an announcement went out that the power was back on.  Problem was, half the neighborhood still didn’t have power.  When one of the neighbors called a JCPL rep told the person “we didn’t know you didn’t have power.”   The person was told the neighborhood went back on the list….the bottom of the list with a 5 day wait.

Maybe JCPL days are like dog years.

shit-hitting-the-fanThe tanker trucks are still heading up Route 36 from the Bayshore sewage plants without power.  May I suggest the truckers deliver to a large fan outside a JCP&L office.

In Highlands, Councilwoman Becky Kane reports that the State of Emergency is still in effect and that there is a curfew from dusk till dawn.

In an email to a Highlands Google group this afternoon, Kane said that JCPL told Highlands OEM that power would likely be out for several days.    At 1:47, a Highlands resident reported to the same group that has just been restored at Shore Dr. and Miller Street.

There is hope for power, but evidently not for a straight story from JCPL
