The municipal complex lost power about 45 minutes ago.
The municipal complex has canceled Monday's 7 p.m. planning board meeting because of a power outage after a thunderstorm hit Bridgewater around 4:30 p.m. The Wemple property hearing, which was scheduled to continue Monday, has been rescheduled, although a new date has not yet been set. Some power outages have been reported throughout the township, although they are few and far between, according to reports from JCP&L and PSE&G. JCP&L is reporting only about five outages due to the storm. PSE&G is reporting between one and 500 outages throughout the township, with similar numbers being reported in Bound Brook and Green Brook. Although the sun seems to be coming back out, are you dealing with any power outages in your area, Bridgewater?
