About 500 Brick Residents Out of Power; No Shelters Open
If shelter is needed, it would be located at Brick Memorial
Jersey Central Power & Light reported 479 customers in Brick were without power Wednesday afternoon.
The utility said customers should report outages by calling 888-544-4877.
Brick Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis said there was a fear that ocean dunes could be washed over by the high tide, though he did not expect a breach.
"We're ready as best we can be," Acropolis said. "I don't think we're going to get any kind of breaches over this."
No decisions have been made to open shelters, the mayor said.
If, depending on the number of power outages or flood issues, a shelter is needed, one would be located at Brick Memorial High School on Lanes Mill Road.
