    Tens of thousands are currently without power at the Jersey Shore.

    It’s due to strong winds combined with mixed precipitation sticking to power lines in some areas, according to the National Weather Service.

    Some trees and power lines are down and transformers are malfunctioning throughout the Shore, emergency radio transmissions indicate. 

    As the storm continues and intensifies today, additional power outages are likely.
