3,500 Still Without Power in Manasquan, Belmar

Gov. Christie vows power restored for all by Sunday

Nearly 3500 homes and businesses in Manasquan and Belmar remain without power, some for 11 days straight, but Gov. Chris Christie told residents Thursday that their lights would return by Sunday. 

Manasquan customers report 1926 outages and are suffering slightly worse than their Belmar counterparts, where 1529 customers report no power, according to the JCP&L outage map.

That's a total of 3491 customers still without power. 

The following is a message from JCP&L received by Manasquan borough officials:

There are dedicated Service Crews handling reconnection work.

Residents should have a licensed electrician make repairs to their homes.

  • If the customer has a functioning electrical service entrance, including the meter – JCP&L will complete the service reconnection.
  • If the meter was removed due to severe damage or flooding – JCP&L will install a new meter after the service is repaired by a qualified electrician and inspected by a state inspector.
  • The inspector will provide certification that the work has been done properly, and will fax the cut-in card to 888-914-9140.
  • The inspector will attach a sticker with the inspection date on the meter pan.

Customers should have their home address or account number when calling the company to request reconnection.

Because of the volume of requests, it could take a few days for service to be reconnected.

To schedule a service reconnection, customers should call 1-800-662-3115.

I guess you both have power by now. I got it on 11 am Sat morning. I'm in the Glendola area. I got a phone call from Wall PD that all Wall was restored and to report any outage to JCPL at 888-LIGHTSS.
