Jersey Central Power & Light said 1,084 customers were without power in Brick Township due to the ongoing nor’easter.
The storm is carrying winds of 60 m.p.h. or more, causing trees to fall on branches, the utility said, adding that crews have already been dispatched to repair lines that are down and assess other outages.
Most of Brick’s outages are off Drum Point Road near Baywood and Seawood Harbor. There are also several outages in the heavily-wooded Herbertsville section. Other scattered outages have been reported across town.
By 2:45 p.m., the company said about 4,000 customers were without power in Ocean County, down from 6,000 earlier in the day.
