Thurs 11:30am Update from Mayor Al Morgan:

Over half our borough has thankfully been restored. Although encouraging news, this does not offer much comfort or relief to the rest of us still suffering without power. Be assured, we are on JCP&L with relentless pressure. I am expecting a JCP&L status update later this afternoon and will keep you updated. Crews are in the borough working. Hopefully everyone received a Smart911 update this morning. If not, please again check if you are registered and/or updated. If you already have a Smart 911 profile, please make sure that you verify your account when you are contacted by RAVE Smart 911. Here is more Smart911 information:


The Recreation Gym on Academy Street is open for charging devices. Please wear a mask and socially distance.


Please do not call the Mountain Valley Dispatch Center  (908-665-1111) or 9-1-1 for power restoration questions. All restoration questions should be directed to JCP&L (888-LIGHTSS) or at


Please stay strong. We will continue to keep you updated as we receive confirmed information. Please look in on each other. We will get through this. Pioneer strong!
