Thousands wake up to no power after winter storms hit the Garden State

Estimated 5K residents in Sussex County experience outages


NEWTON — As people across the Garden State are cleaning up after Wednesday’s storm, more than 200,000 are starting the day without power.

Though approximately 5,000 people in Sussex County are without power, many say they are doing their best to deal with the situation. Land surveyor Kevin Hanna is having trouble doing his job this morning because of the conditions.

“I work for surveying and engineering for a company. So actually, all this snow actually prohibits the work we try to do," Hanna said. He's hoping that power comes back on soon and the snow melts quickly.

Bob Cartagena is happy that his lights are still on.

"It got to about 18 inches, I would think. But the roads were taken care of and everything was done pretty well. I didn't lose any power, fortunately," Cartagena said.

Despite snow on side streets, main roads like Route 94 are clear in spite of Wednesday’s storm.
