The following update was posted on the West Caldwell website Thursday afternoon.
MESSAGE FROM MAYOR JOSEPH TEMPESTA
PSE&G is making some progress and brought power back to approximately 500 more residents Thursday.
As of Thursday at 3 p.m., it was estimated that approximately 60 percent of the township was without power.
More neighborhoods gained power last night. We recognize that all of our residents are not receiving this message but those of you that are receiving this message we ask if you can share this message with your neighbors.
Also please check on your neighbors, particularly senior citizens that may need extra assistance.
The West Caldwell Public Library has also re-opened on Friday for residents seeking to keep warm and recharge their cell phones and laptops.
PSE&G has activated its Twitter page to keep the public informed about our restoration progress. Sign up as a follower at http://twitter.com/psegdelivers to monitor restoration progress.
