Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty is asking residents still without power to bombard JCP&L with phone calls until the lights come back on.
Ten days after Hurricane Sandy, only 30 percent of town has power, Doherty said. That is "unacceptable," he said.
"Like you, I am very frustrated with the current situation with our electric and heat. However, I appreciate how much the community is coming together to help one another at this time," Doherty said in a release.
Doherty asks residents to call JCP&L at 888-544-4877 until the borough has power.
"If you do have electric and heat and have a neighbor who may not be as fortunate, please invite them into your home," Doherty said.
Warm clothing, blankets, food, medical supplies, over the counter medicines and firewood are available at Borough Hall, 601 Main Street. If you cannot make it there, the borough will deliver to you. Please call 732-681-3700.
If you need water pumped out of your basement or cleaned out of debris, please call 732-681-3700.
There are three streets that are open with checkpoints from Main Street to Ocean Avenue. They are Fifth, 11th and 12th Avenues, Doherty said.
