Day 5 With No Power For Most

Getting through another day without heat or light in Wall Township

Good morning, Wall Township.

For most, it’s Day 5 without power, and most without heat. It’s November, and it’s getting colder.

If you’re lucky enough to live around the Collingswood Circle area, your power has been on for two days. If you’re lucky enough to live on the west end of Belmar Boulevard, somehow tied into the traffic light at the boulevard and Route 34, your power came on last night.

You’re the envy of all Wall Township.

The Intermediate School was opened last night to those who had no other refuge from the cold. As I write this at 9 a.m., they are leaving. It is a temporary shelter. No official word yet if that will open again tonight.

In addition to the traffic light at Route 34 and Belmar Boulevard, the light where at Airport Road and the state highway is also functioning, as well as the light where Wyckoff Road meets Route 34. But no others.

There are about 11,000 residents without power. of those will have power by Monday. But the company says the remainder could wait another seven to 10 days, putting those unlucky folks right in the middle of a possible Nor’Easter that could hit mid-week.

The gas stations on the Northwest side of town are open. Rationing, however, starts today – as if not being able to find an open gas station at all isn’t rationing enough.

: If the last digit of your license plate – no matter where in the sequence that digit falls – is even, you may fill up on even numbered days. Odd numbered plates, odd days. Vanity plates, those without digits, are, appropriately, considered odd.

The 7 p.m. curfew has been lifted.

If you’re low on ice or water, the distribution center at the Circle Factory Outlet center at Atlantic Avenue and Route 35 is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Please use the comments below to help out: Tell everyone where you’re finding supplies – batteries, gas, kerosene, food – and what you see from where  you are.

Good luck, Wall Township.

Can someone tell me why Wall Township is NOT EVEN LISTED on the Governor's restoration list he keeps talking about!!! I looked it up and in Monmouth County there is NO MENTION of Wall Township!!
Dave November 04, 2012 at 12:25 AM
Just saw Wall on the list, but it's very vague. Apparently, ***possible rumor*** there was a substation flooded that may cause areas of north Wall near Central School to be out for a longer period of time. Not getting any info out of JCP&L.

Wow. Wall is falling apart. Just read on starnewsgroup.com that a woman was killed at an intersection. Wonder if it was one of the many unattended intersections in town!

Look at starnewsgroup.com for the story and click on the link, they have the updated list from JCPL. Doesn't look good though.

Sea Girt Estates without power. Three big trees down with wires in them, Magnolia Ave., Azalea Ave. and West Chicago Blvd. Don't want to go into the Northeaster Wed with no power.

West Belmar Section of Wall Twp from Grove St east came on last night.
Jenn Romelfanger November 04, 2012 at 07:46 PM
Atlantic ave still no power. Not sure when
Katie November 07, 2012 at 03:36 AM
The woman that was killed did not plow thru the intersection. According to news she was hit by pick-up truck. People should get their facts straight before posting. This is someone's mother. Very disrespectful.
