There were no evacuations in place township-wide, however, a robocall from the township said.

High tide at Silver Bay will occurr at 11:02 p.m. Wednesday night and 11:14 a.m. Thursday morning.

Power was out from about 9:15 to 11:45 tonight. I hope that is it for now, but it sure beats 11 days!

My power was out 16 days last time. When will JCP&L get its act together? It's like living in a third-world country!

Old Freehold Rd. at Whitty Rd. is closed due to flooding. It the area under the Parkway overpass. No police are present, but there are trucks working there and the area is blocked off. You think people would get a clue and realize they can't use the road, but I just witnessed a car with 2 cones wedged under it driving west on Whitty Rd. as we'll as other cars attempting to ircumvent the traffic cones

You are so right. I think that JCP&L can't handle the job anymore. Every time we get a gust of wind or a drop of rain the power goes out. Even before the wrath of Sandy, this past summer we had a 5 minute thunderstorm that knocked power out for over 9 hours. They really do have to get their act together and be accountable.
