MORRISTOWN, NJ—The number of power outages in Morristown and Morris Township decreased considerably, with both municipalities reporting numbers in the teens on Monday night. Jersey Central Power & Light set an estimated restoration time of 11:30 p.m. tonight.

"Utility crews are addressing many localized issues and restoring individual customers," a statement from the company said. " This requires crews to travel to individual locations to restore about 2,800 JCP&L customers [statewide] who remain without power. This is the most time-consuming, labor intensive and complex part of service restoration."

The utility has estimated restoration times of tonight at 10:00 p.m. or 11:30 p.m. for all of Morris County's 499 outages.
