It’s being called “Frankenstorm,” and New Jersey utilities say there could be a lot to be afraid of.
JCP&L didn’t mince words when they warned residents at a press conference to expect power outages that could last a week or more.
PSE&G has even asked employees to cancel vacations to make sure all hands are on deck. In the meantime, spokesperson Karen Johnson says they’ve been stocking up on repair supplies.
“We are making sure that we have extra poles and transformers. We’re also moving in some mobile transformers in some of our substations to make sure that those are prepared as well.”
Johnson says residents should make sure they have extra batteries and working flashlights. And if the power does go out on Halloween night – they should not use candles.
