Yesterday afternoon JCP&L Government Affairs Rep Roberta Sheridan told Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan that tonight’s first crew would be dispatched to Highlands at 10PM to restore power to the Wyndmoor Condominiums.
Nolan held a public information meeting for Highlands residents Friday evening. There were about 100 residents there, 40 from Wyndmoor. Meals had been provided earlier in the day at the community center. Too bad showers couldn’t be provided. Nolan relayed JCP&L’s commitment to a respectful, yet frustrated and skeptical crowd .
At 11:30 a JCP&L rep, Jackie, told Nolan that the crew was in Union Beach heading to Highlands. Nolan headed to Wyndmoor where he found residents Dick McCormick and Ray Goddard waiting. McCormick had been waiting since 9:30.
Wyndmoor has 125 electrical customers. At 11:12 PM on Friday, JCP&L posted that only 79 Highlands customers were without power.
Goddard sent me at text at 11:27, “no trucks at Wyndmoor.”
The trucks showed up at 1:17 AM. The power finally went on at 7:20 AM.
