Many families in Ocean County and New Jersey are still feeling the effects today from Tropical Storm Isaias.

There are still approximately 20,000 homes in Toms River that are still close to 70,000 in total for Ocean County without power still.

JCP & L announced that they are working around the clock and sending in an additional 4,000 utility workers to get power restored as quickly as possible.
