JCP&L Says Between 7 and 14 Days for Marlboro

Hornik said the estimate should be closer to seven days because Marlboro had no flooding compared to its Bayshore neighbors.

Mayor Jon Hornik is expected a full status report from JCP&L by the end of business today.

"I have no better information than the information I have been sharing with the public," Hornik said.

Hornik said a Wednesday morning conference call with officials in Monmouth County and JCP&L said some county residents may be without power for 14 days. But Hornik said the lack of flooding in Marlboro means residents are looking at an estimated 7 days without power.

There are four temporary charging stations set up in Marlboro, where residents can also go to take a seat in the warmth. No laptop or tablet charging.

  • Robertsville Fire Station on Rt. 520
  • Morganville Independent Fire Station Rt. 79
  • Court House at Municipal Complex 
  • Marlboro Recreation Center

The Marlboro Police Department is currently taking in medication which needs to be refrigerated, such as insulin. 

Those with medical needs should call 9-1-1 in an emergency.

As of Wednesday night, mroe than 15,000 people in Marlboro were still without power, according to the JCP&L outage map.

Mayor Hornik - There are two large trees that have been cut down - one on Taylors Mills Road right off Robertsville Road and one on Robertsville Road between Taylor Mills and Ryan Road - to date no one from JCP&L has been there to fix the wires. We are freezing - everyone around us has power - it has been a week. Why can't they get to us. The Greenbriar community of Marlboro needs their power.

Frann, please call 732-536-0100 for help. If those wires have not been reported, JCP&L may not know about it.
