Over 500 in Lakewood without power

Nearly 600 JCP&L customers in Lakewood are without power this evening.

The power went out shortly after 9 PM.

A resident in the Route 88 area tells TLS he heard a loud boom, which he believes was a transformer. The power went out immediately after that.

Residents in the area of E. 7th St., Somerset Avenue, Manetta Avenue, and Route 88 are without power.

The company gave an ETA of 12:30 AM for restoration.

  1. A friend of mine complained that Democrats in Congress have too much power, which begs the question: Just because I’m a Republican, I must be without power?!!
    I don’t get it, Republicans definitely have an electrifying agenda, and yet they are still unable to generate any power?!! Will somebody please shed some light on this one?

  2. The democrats are actually transformer robots programmed by the CIA and made by China. Their tiny batteries last up to 4 years before needing to be recharged. The downside or upside is they tend to implode and explode posing dangerous health and national security issues.
