UPDATED: Lights Back On? Let Patch Know!

Let us know if you have power back

We're getting reports of power returning to Springfield homes. 

So, to that end, we're making a switch. We want you to let us know where there is power. That is, where has power been restored. Feel free to leave your comments below and, as always, be sure to name your street and town. And, this time around, let everyone know when power went back on where you live.

Congratulations for stepping back into the 21st century!

UPDATED, MONDAY, NOV. 5: We've compiled a list of areas reported to have power. JCP&L are reporting that 3,947 customers are without power, down from 4,640 yesterday.

My fingers and toes are crossed! I called the governor yesterday along with every elected official I could. Hoping that makes a difference and we get power back today!!! Please keep us posted. I will stop by after work this evening and check things out.
Mira November 09, 2012 at 02:47 PM
I am in for the petition too. Did any one get a word with the JCPL team that restored power yesterday as to when the rest of SHCV will be restored?
Steven Franklin November 09, 2012 at 02:53 PM
Lots of trucks on Stone Hill Rd at this time. Looks like Troy may finally get their wish today. I wish you guys the best.
Cheryl November 09, 2012 at 03:00 PM
@ Steven there's hope
Lily November 09, 2012 at 03:09 PM
Thanks everyone.. I am really hoping today is the day... got upset bc trucks in front of me left but If trucks are really on stone hill that is great news. Thankfully yesterday night was not nearly as cold as the one before. I will update asap if we get power. I hope everyone with out is restored today

Here's what you've gotta do if you want to withold rent at SHCV, pursuant to section 17 of your lease. You need to personally deliver (or send by certified mail, return receipt requested) notice that the apartment is uninhabitable due to the landlord's failure to provide heat and hot water.
DA November 09, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Just drove thru shcv and there are trucks working on the back on the odd side so hopefully power is back soon
Anonymous Tenant November 09, 2012 at 03:30 PM
See this link for more information on witholding rent. We might not get much this time, but we should as a group be quick to act next time and the missing dollars will motivate them. http://nj.gov/dca/divisions/codes/publications/pdf_lti/habitablity.pdf

Esmeralda Mata November 09, 2012 at 04:59 PM

Lily November 09, 2012 at 05:26 PM

Cheryl November 09, 2012 at 05:35 PM
Yaay! Hopefully Stone Hill Road is back as well !
Mari November 09, 2012 at 05:38 PM

Mari November 09, 2012 at 05:40 PM

Thank you Lily

The address in the lease should be fine. Since the law gives the landlord a chance to fix the thing that's making the apartment uninhabitable after the tenant notifies them, I don't think we'll be able to withold rent this time around. Next time around, however, we'll know how to do it. I should say that I'm not a lawyer, and I would get the advice of one before witholding rent. Since it wouldn't make sense for us each to get one individually, it might make sense to do so as a group.

Any update on Short hills apartments power?

For all Troy residents who may not be on the email distribution list from mgmt., here's the email that just came out: Power has been restored to all of Troy. Heat and hot water and lights. Boiler 5 the pipe is being repaired and will be online by 6pm (affects units 85/87/89/91/93). The system will take 6 to 8 hours to reach the capacity we are used to. We also turned up the computer temps so you may get hotter than usual. I didn't think you would mind. We may have issues with air in the system. As the office will be closed Saturday and Sunday please call the Emergency number to report issues. Heat calls will be addressed all day Saturday and Sunday on a first call basis. Please be considerate and if one room is not hot enough maybe we wait till Monday and Tuesday to address those. If you are uncomfortable we will come.

Cheryl November 09, 2012 at 08:54 PM
Thank you for the update! So happy and relieved! Cheryl
Jyoti Navani-Sharma November 10, 2012 at 12:56 AM
Any update on South Derby Rd?
Marc November 10, 2012 at 09:01 AM
Oh ok, that probably answers why I (in building 89) had hot water (and electricity) on Wednesday night but still no heat (but luckily the electric heater I'd borrowed from a friend helped ease the chill on those COLD Wednesday and Thursday nights). Got heat back tonight and internet back just now so it's all good now. Thank you guys as well as the many utility/line workers for making this happen for us. :-)
Debra Marshall November 10, 2012 at 05:23 PM
Power restored on Colfax, Severna, Tower, Prospect and Baltusrol. If anyone needs something due to Sandy, please feel free to contact me, the heat is cranked and I just stocked up at the supermarket. Thanks to Patch and concerned neighors in town.
K November 10, 2012 at 08:55 PM
fyi - The landlord is not making your apt uninhabitable so you cannot withhold rent. The landlord has no control over the utility company nor control over mother nature. if you follow this advice you'll be sure to have eviction proceedings started against you. Most leases have an act of God clause.
