New Power Restorations, Services For Chester

North Road and Old Farmstead receive power back.

Have there been any trucks in the Borough for real today? Many houses and Streets of Chester are still closed. Updated JCPL charts tell those of us w/o power next to nothing. Can't we get info street by street at this point? Anything more?
