Bird Knocks Out Power to Nearly 2,500 in NJ
More than 2,000 power customers in Morristown and Morristown Township lost electricity when a bird flew into some power lines Sunday morning.
NJ.com reports a bird flew into and locked down cables near 11 Sussex Tpke. at about 9:30 a.m. About 2,400 Jersey Central Power & Light customers lost power as a result.
They were all back on line by 11:30 a.m.
An area manager for JCP&L told NJ.com he doubted the bird survived.
"This does happen from time to time," said Peter Johner. "Usually they don't make it."
