Downed power lines are being blamed for knocking out power to 2,000 residents of Morristown and Morris Township on Sunday afternoon.
Lines went down on George Street in Morristown causing outages at 4:30 pm, said Michael Obremski, a spokesman for Jersey Central Power & Light.
Power was restored at 9:13 pm.
Affected areas included Burnham Park, straddling Morristown and the Township, and The Seeing Eye Inc. headquarters in the Township, Michael said.
Gusty winds blew through Morristown on Sunday, knocking over canopies and signs at the Gran Fondo NJ biking event. But it was not immediately clear what brought down the power lines, according to the spokesman.
The number of customers affected in each town was about the same, he said.
