Power Outages For Jersey Shore This Morning
After some nasty storms that made their way through our area, there are some power outages for Monmouth and Ocean County residents this morning.
The storms that came through the Jersey Shore yesterday brought severe thunderstorm warnings, gusty winds, heavy downpours, lightning, hail and scattered power outages throughout out area.
The county with the most power outages in the JCP&L service area in New Jersey is Monmouth County, with Ocean County right behind. Despite the severity of the storms in spots, this morning's outages are limited and scattered.
JCP&L reports that there are 106 customers without power in Monmouth County this morning, and in Ocean County, JCP&L says 79 customers remain in the dark. They report that in areas they serve, the remainder of the state has less than 20 customers without power.
There is are clusters of outages in the Englishtown area, as well as an area in Holmdel near the Garden State Parkway, and the estimated time for the return of power to these areas is later this morning.
You can get updates on JCP&L power outage at their Power Center page.
Some areas of Monmouth & Ocean Counties were hit harder than others with yesterday's series of thunderstorms. I was in Point Pleasant and we did experience the heavy rain, gusty winds and about a half hour of hail.
According to out Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, there are some spotty showers and thunderstorms possible for our area today, but it doesn't look like anything as severe as yesterday's storms.
