As power outages are expected to continue through the night, Montville Mayor Tim Braden said the township would advise residents not to expect immediate power restoration.

"We've been on conference calls all day with the governor and JCP&L and it's important for people to know even when their power goes out, if their power goes out, the repair crews will not be going up in bucket trucks and addressing the outages until the wind drops below 40 miles per hour," Braden said. 

Braden said the strong winds have created an unsafe condition for the utility workers.

"A safe condition needs to exist before they can do it," he said.
