Day Six Without Power Brings Little Change

Thousands are still in the dark in Bridgewater.

With almost a full week gone since Superstorm Sandy battered the area, more than 10,000 people in Bridgewater are still without power as of Sunday morning.

For PSE&G, between 5,001 and 10,000 people are still without power, with no change in the figures since Saturday.

According to reports from PSE&G, there are still 445,000 customers without power in the entire region. The storm, the company's website says, impacted 1.7 million of its 2.2 million customers.

With JCP&L, there are 1,671 without power in Bridgewater, as opposed to 1,897 reported Saturday.

These figure are as of 9 a.m. Sunday.

For up-to-date JCP&L information about when power is expected to be restored and how many will remain in the dark, check out JCP&L's continuously updated restoration report by clicking here.

And tell us in the comments where you are, and whether or not you have power at this time.

I need to ask where is our mayor and council during this disaster???????/ I have not heard one word from Bridgewater Officials. I have spoken with helpful first responders and police( and I am grateful for their concern and assistance) but received no direction or assistance from our elected officials. I hear more from the Gov's office, PSEG, then Bridgewater. What a shame......

I am on Van Nest Drive in Martinsville. We lost power on Monday night in the storm. Since the tree is still on the wire, I'm not expecting any improvements in the near future. No power means no water for us.

Solomon Dr, Joshua Ln, Sarah Ct, Adrian Terr, Argonne Fm Rd, Arrowsmith Dr & most of Washington Valley Rd now power since Monday. Very difficult to get anywhere since many roads are blocked by trees and power lines. Do not see how this will be resolved anytime soon. Cold, achy, tired & hungry. Very disappointed in our mayor & council too. I say on Tuesday we vote out any incumbent in office. It's time we get new blood in there to work for our town!

Out of power since Monday, had it briefly on Friday, then out again. Did they give up and move on on our grid???
HBJames November 04, 2012 at 08:07 PM
I agree that municipal government has been terribly disappointing. Where the heck are they??? Apparently the Mayor is posting occasional updates on the town website. That's really super for the 10,000 residents with no power. Shame on you, Mayor Hayes! We're freezing and sick of it!

Branchburg.... White Oak Park area.....no power and no JCP&l...only crew I saw lately is Comcast. Little or No info from township. Will vote my mind on Tuesday. Also trick or treaters stay away....down wires...no lights..dangerous

No power on Sargent Street
Linda Stefani November 04, 2012 at 10:30 PM
We live on Van Nest in Martinsville - no power for us = no water!! Still a tree on the wires and we don't see an end in sight!
charlie November 04, 2012 at 10:48 PM
How come NYC can get all of the schools open and Bridgewater cant? How come we arent getting help getting power back? How come we arrent getting direction updates about gas or help for those in need, edlerly, water etc..... Where are our officials helping us? This treatment is not acceptable
charlie November 04, 2012 at 11:21 PM
Compliments to rhe Gov and Lt Gov for all they have accomplished for citizens. I would not have known about voting at County Clerks office to vote for the past few days. How r those with out power in bridgewater to know this? I was lucky enough to get a hotel room after 4 days and learn about voting and gas rations........ This is wrong on the part of Bridgewater officials!!!! When do u help those in need....
Celeste Muniz November 04, 2012 at 11:24 PM
Foothill road 600 block. Poles and wires hanging over the road on a bend. You people going to call it a tragedy when someone is dead?
charlie November 04, 2012 at 11:30 PM
Can we use gyms at schools to help those in need of heat, water, food? What about the upcoming storm? What about the existing dangers with downed trees, poles. Are people left to handle this themselves? I went down to Admin Building no info left there for residents either? Where are town workers helping us? In nyc they were required to work? This broken govt in bridgewater

I agree, I am very disappointed with local government response after this storm. A lot of info on the TV but we don't have access to that. I feel abandoned with no communication from municipality. I just got on a computer today! This is day 6 without power. I'm surprised about the elderly residents in my neighborhood...Mallard Drive. I realize we need to check on our neighbors during these trying times but I think police or someone from the town should have at least come onto our block to see if everyone was ok.
edna November 05, 2012 at 12:36 PM
Is power back by the Crim school district. I agree day one after the storm,where is our Mayor and councilman? Very disappointed with their performance. No set up for people with no water, how about having one fire truck to go neighbor hood to neighbor hood to least give water .

I know that Mayor Dan Hayes has been around town......he visited my brother's neighborhood and met with residents. Obviously he can;t be everywhere.
A. Papp November 05, 2012 at 06:01 PM
It's time we start thinking about moving all our utilities underground to protect the electric distribution from falling trees. Until we do this, this power outages will continue to occur. My Neighborhood sounds like a 3rd world country with all the generators running....just like Baghdad!!
charlie November 05, 2012 at 06:26 PM
Great to hear!!!!!! But what has he done to help all in need, provide assistance information, leadership? Where are town employees?
mid November 06, 2012 at 06:17 PM
still no power - mine road/foothill road. do we have a date when the power will be back?
Paula November 06, 2012 at 07:02 PM
Rector Road, Sherwood, Croyden, Carteret, entire neighborhood looks like a war zone. Not one truck in sight in 7 days. Last year they left half the street in the dark for over a week, they didn't care it was only the last 5 houses. I called the police station, the non emergency number, and they were so arrogant and rude. Told me I'm on the list! That was it. Asked for directions from an office since I was taking my son to the Emergency room and he was so rude, just said ...nah...can't help ya. What in the world are these people doing? Some of us are alone with little kids and no generators!
