JCP&L Weather Update 10/24/18

Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is closely monitoring the weather and the forecast for a potential nor’easter this weekend. JCP&L is prepared to activate its storm response plan should outages occur.

In the event of severe weather, customers should immediately report downed wires to their utility, or call their local police or fire department and call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or click the “Report Outage” link on to report any outages.

JCP&L reminds customers to stay away from downed wires, even if they believe they are no longer carrying electricity. Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled with trees or other debris.

JCP&L customers can also subscribe to email and text message alert notifications to receive weather updates in advance of major storms and updates on scheduled or extended power outages. Customers can also use two-way text messaging to report outages, request updates on restoration efforts and make other inquiries about their accounts.
