No way it is 70%
clarken drive continues without any power as well as west orange high
The worst part is no one gives you correct information why how and when restoration will occur

I agree! NO chance it's 70%. Aspen, Hickory, and Beech Rd in WO near the Livingston border NO power and forgotten about as usual! This town is a god damn joke.

I've tried calling PSE&G six times and cannot get through. No information, no communication. That 70 percent numbers sounds dubious to me, I know a lot of people still without power.

What about the Township of Orange? No mention of their priority on the repair schedule?. Where's the Mayor after days with no utilities. Can he make a statement or comment on behalf of he residents and tax payers with no heat or electricity.

This town is such a joke
PSEG reports false numbers
Christie says to check the web site for current information that gives you false hope
And then the press publishes stories that power is returned
The high school and surrounding areas and traffic lights are dark for christ sake
With no one providing TRUE information

So much for the pseg restoration schedule. Our home in the st cloud section and family by 280 are still out. We will go on tomorrow just to lose it again during upcoming storm. When I sneeze power goes out and a fart sends down trees. We live in a glass town!

Gregory ave is still without power. The guy across the street from me still has a down power line. Pse&g passes looks points and keeps driving. Why do we pay such high taxes if we cant get lights or basic township services. Two blocks down from me has lights. As for orange. I had to take my mom to the shelter her street in orange (hickory street orange) has no lights either. At the shelter i saw two other resedents from hickory as well. Wow

Most of Pleasantdale still without power. No power on Stanford Avenue, Lakeview Drive, and surrounds as of 1:30pm on 11/04. We need power at West Orange High to vote!

I feel all your frustrations. My four siblings and mother live in Livingston and each of their respective households have been restored. Maybe it's more like 70 percent of town "without" power.

We are still without power just south of Gregory Ave (Yale, Harvard etc.) We have children...this is ridiculous. The CVS shopping Center on Valley has power so why don't we???

Walker rd and most of Gregory is out. How is that 70% there has been no aprox. For this area.
What is going on?

This is insane. We still have no power on stanford ave. with the high school and pleasantdale school on the corner we should have been the very first restored. My taxes are sky high yet we're still suffering. What are my taxes paying for???

The Pleasantdale section of West Orange seems to have been completely forgotten. Children were within feet of a downed power line on Lakeview Dr. earlier today. I'd worry if I thought there was any chance of power going through those lines any time soon. A group of residents from Lakeview Dr., Stanford Ct. and Stanford Ave. gathered informally on the street to talk and share info. Not surprisingly, no one had seen any sign of PSE&G since the storm. With two of the area's largest schools without power, and dark traffic lights stretching for blocks on Pleasant Valley Way one has to wonder about their priorities.
Fat ass Gov Christie

Lies, lies and more lies from the incompetent boobs that run WO and NJ. I betcha Christie is roasting marshmallows and eating turkey legs like Henry VIII. PSE&G can suck my nuts. I've seen this same nonsense with power out forever without any real info. on repairs or restoration 2x in less than 365 days. Never gonna let this bs happen again: whole house generator here I come. The grid can bend over and kiss my freezing dimly lit asscheeks!

Population-wise, it may very well be 70%, as the valley has a high concentration of people and as such, since the power was largely restored there, may have boosted the numbers. But yes, a large section of W.O. (namely the parts that are close to the Roseland border) are still without power, and have been without it for 7 days. This is getting ridiculous.
