Tracking Outages, Reports Questioned, Beating Nor'easter Top Stories

High school board voting and school closings also among week's top stories.

We've been tracking who's got electric service restored all week, crowd-sourcing the work in town. Readers have been helping us update where there's services and where's there's not.

Other top stories this week include:

One of the reasons we launched the map was because readers were having trouble getting good information—as it turned out, township officials were having the same problem.

Surviving the Coming 'Snow'easter' Without Power

Just when we thought we were out...a fresh threat arrived with cold temperatures, high winds and snow.

UPDATE: Przybylski Maintains Lead as More Ballots are Counted

Hurricane Sandy caused such widespread damage to the state, officials encouraged residents to use mail-in ballots and other means to make sure residents voted—even extending the deadline for mail-in ballots to Friday.

This clouded the election, and while at last notice, Greg Przybylski holds an edge over Diane Belcuore, the results aren't official yet.

Unstable Power Supply Shutters Schools for 10th Day 

Warren Township schools had service in most schools by the end of the week, but was it safe for students?

We're with you! To date we've seen a pole dropt off after a week of looking at a tree perilously leaning across the road, proped up by the lines themselves. No feedback from JCP&L, no idea whether we'll be back on line today or next month.
Gary Martin November 11, 2012 at 03:25 PM
We live on My Horeb near King George. The lines are intact. What's the problem JCP&L why do t we have power 14 DAYS IN TGE DARK ON A MAKN ROAD IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE ! Gary Martin

Did they forget about North Road? we still have no power day 13!!! Does anyone know when, does anyone have a answer, does anyone care? Enough is enough this is Totally Unacceptable. As of Sat. the wires are still in the road with all the poles, when will it be fixed? a answer would be nice. Doris Lienhard

The township of Warren is not getting the results that should have been acquired days ago. What is going on with JCPL and when will the power be restored to these customers who have been left in the dark? one being my sister and her family for two weeks now NOTHING. I have contacted JCPL everyday and said the power would be restored by Wednesday, then changed to Saturday, now changed to Sunday. Some give you the written speech that "we are doing the best we can to restore the power to our customers" then you call another rep and get a totally different story. Let's get it together and get the job done, what do you say??? This is totally unacceptable for these helpless families whom feel they have been left in the dark!! It's about time something is done to get the lights back on NOW!!! Warren township needs the help from their town officials to get the power restored. People need to know and deserve to know the specifics of what is going on.

If JCPL can't service customers in Warren maybe it is time for someone to look into replacing the ?
Resident Warren November 11, 2012 at 05:24 PM
@Gary - Bridgewater Patch has a movement to replace JCP&L. There is also a Facebook page which many of us have joined.. https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/groups/214956725303852/?fref=ts

We are one of several houses still out on Reinman Rd. This is really getting ridiculous. Also, we have not seen even one JCP & L truck this whole time. There does not even appear to be any wires/poles/trees down near us. What is the story? We realize this was an unprecedented storm but two weeks out, really?

I just left a message for the mayor. I'm sure I will get a quick return call. I also learned from a post that our line here on Mt Horeb is fed by Summit. If that's true, Summit has had power since the Wed after the storm.

908-922-1973 is the Mayor's cell phone number
E. Holdwright November 12, 2012 at 01:27 AM
We have power on Reinman Road ...yay...finally!
youngreckless November 12, 2012 at 03:38 AM
Mt Horeb Rd still no power come on already!
ambitiously blonde November 12, 2012 at 03:38 AM
They are driving all over MT Horeb shining their light and driving by not stopping I guess they are just now assessing. That was aggressive and foolish of our Gov to think JCP&L would be able to meet the Sun deadline.
ambitiously blonde November 12, 2012 at 03:47 AM
I have emailed the Gov. I have tweeted the Gov and I have called the Gov. Other than showing up on his doorstep which I'm pretty sure will get me those three hots and a cott I am desperately yearning for I don't know what else to do. Oh wait. I remember--in New Orleans after Katrina they painted HELP on their roof and sat on their roof top and waited for the socialist I mean government to rescue them.
