    Where are the power outages?

  • JCPL Supporter says:

    Working with electricity is not an easy job..its dangerous and they take every precaution when doing it. It could be 2 hrs it could be as long as 12 hrs but they will try to reroute power until they can get the repair and replacement done. It sucks but think you are just in a dark house..they are working with 40k volts or more of electricity

  • Just thinking out loud says:

    hey maybe they can do an upgrade to the service, the insurance company is paying for it.

  • original Lakewood resident says:

    Reckless driving is the cause of this…
