3/7/18 Nor'easter Information

The Nor'easter has arrived and we are now under a State of Emergency. While a travel ban has not been imposed, we think the next few lines are a good reason on why you should stay off the roadways.

The NOAA National Weather Service snowfall map has increased its predictions as of 4 AM with an estimate of 15 inches of accumulation in our area. During points of the storm snowfall rates could be as high as 2 inches an hour. The wind will be increasing throughout the day. During the storm you may think you can make it to your destination driving, but if you get stuck you not only endanger yourself, but the first responders coming to assist.

With this amount of snow, roads can become narrower even as the DPW plows attempt to clear the snow curb to curb. If your vehicle is parked on a snow covered roadway it will significantly hamper the efforts of the plow trucks and could even impede first responders. With that said, illegally parked vehicles during the snow storm will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

If you have not seen pictures yet on social media or in the news, a small army of linemen from multiple states has already been called in to help JCP&L restore the power to its customers. They will be working through the storm as long as the winds stay below 40 mph (OSHA regulation) and they can safely navigate the roads. If your power goes out you can report it on the JCP&L FirstEnergy App, JCP&L website, or 1-888-4877 (1-888-LIGHTSS). Do not attempt to move any downed wires.

To all the first responders, plow operators, tow truck operators, utility workers, hospital employees and emergency dispatchers working today...STAY SAFE AND THANK YOU!
