The outage may last up to 24 hours.  This outage is necessary in order to de-energize downed lines, remove fallen trees, re-install utility poles, and place new power lines in service.  Full restoration updates, visit

Customers in the vicinity of Prospect Avenue from Harding Road to McLaren Street, including Hilltop Terrace, Tower Hill Condos, Navesink Pointe, John Street, and Harrison Avenue, may be affected by this outage.
