Mount Olive Transformer Expolsion

Mount Olive Transformer ExplosionMOUNT OLIVE, NEW JERSEY - We had an exciting night on Corey Road last evening. A limb from a nearby tree landed on the power lines causing the transformer to blow. Two live wires were knocked loose and fell to the ground causing power outages and danger.

We watched as the raw power from wires lit up the street, scorched the earth, and burned through our neighbor's metal mailbox like a knife through butter.

The indecent occurred at 10:00pm outside the business of Roger M. Casulli, DDSPA/Family Dentistry, 26 Cory Road, Flanders, New Jersey 07836. Mr. Casulli reported several equipment failures this morning that were caused by the power serge.

Mount Olive Police and Firefighters responded quickly last night and contacted Jersey Central Power and Light to turn off power and repair the wires.

JCP&L did a great job restoring the power and we were thankful to have heat and a hot shower this morning.
