On Tuesday, August 4, 2020 the region was significantly impacted by Tropical Storm Isaias with heavy rain and strong winds that caused wide spread power outages. Information is available from JCP&L on the restoration of electricity.
Update - August 6, 2020: Late yesterday, JCP&L released a Global Estimated Time of Restoration (ETR) for all those impacted with power outages in New Jersey. That Global ETR is Monday, August 11, 2020. This means that JCP&L expects to have 95% of those without power restored by that date/time. The possibility exists that power may be restored sooner than that global date/time. Please check the JCP&L website, more specific information may be available.
Please be mindful that even if power appears to be out in an area, wires may become live for a variety of reasons; always treat downed wires as if they are live with electricity!
