JCP&L is reporting numerous outages in Randolph from the winter storm which hit the area over the past few days. Crews have been in town all day assessing and/or repairing damaged lines and poles and will be continuing their work into this evening. Residents’ best source for information related to outages is the JCP&L website; the township does not have more information than what JCP&L posts. If your power is out and you have not yet reported it, call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877), or click the “Report Outage” link at the JCP&L website.
Due to the power outages, the township has established warming/charging stations:
- The community center at 30 Calais Road will be open until 9:00 p.m.
- The Randolph library will be open until 9:00 p.m.
- The Randolph YMCA will be open until 10:00 p.m.
The town does not open shelters overnight as we do not have the required resources to meet the health and security requirements for a 24-hour shelter.
