JCP&L blamed "severe weather" for the 176 Bernards Township households and 408 Bernardsville customers reportedly without power as of 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.
However, the outages, reported earlier in the evening, were mostly resolved by about 10:30 p.m., according to JCP&L's outage map.
As of about 12:40 p.m. on Thursday, the number of outages reported in Bernards were less than 5 — but were up to 46 in nearby Bernardsville, after being less than half of that on Wednesday night.
The power company's outage map offered the assurance that crews were working to restore electricity for affected customers.
A reader reported that power had gone out along Route 202 by Douglas Road in Bernardsville at about 6:30 p.m., and borough police confirmed that the outage continued as of shortly before 9:30 p.m. She said her power returned shortly after 10 p.m.
Those without power are asked by JCP&L to call 1-888-544-4877.
