Most Residents Without Power, Officials Say

This includes Basking Ridge and Bedminster.

Almost the entire towns of Basking Ridge and Bedminster are without power Tuesday after Hurricane Sandy ripped through the area throughout most of Monday.

Bedminster Mayor Robert Holtaway said that most residents there were in the dark as of Monday evening, and Bernards Township Police said most of their residents are without power as of Tuesday morning.

The Somerset Hills areas are managed exclusively by JCP&L.

According to JCP&L, Bernards Township has 12,474 residents without power. In Bedminster, there are 3,689 residents without power, and Bernardsville is dealing with 3,436 residents without power.

This is all as of about 11 a.m. Tuesday.

How are you dealing without the power?

The Bernardsville library is open as a shelter. Somerset County is operating a shelter at Raritan Valley Community College, and the Pottersville Firehouse reportedly was going to open as a shelter. Morristown has partial power, and that's where I am.

We are making the most of it. No one was hurt with all the flying debris from the downed trees, sharp aluminum flashing, window screens and roof shingles. We count our blessing. John Hudson 25 Princeton Ct 908-812-9719

Would like to understand more details of people who still have electricity in the Basking ridge area - is it because their supplier is different from the rest of us or is their distributor not JCPL
