About 1300 power outages were reported throughout Matawan, Aberdeen and Keyport early Monday morning, according to a map on the JCP&L website.
A main power line near the intersection of Little Street and Atlantic Avenue in Matawan came down, which caused the outages, said Aberdeen Chief of Police John Powers. It is unknown at this time what caused it to come down.
Drivers were detoured around the area while JCP&L repaired the wires. Aberdeen resident and commuter Pat Noble told Patch that the power outages had no effect on early morning trains.
As of 8 a.m., power had been restored to the area, Powers said.
The Matawan Police Department, the Aberdeen Fire Department and the Aberdeen Police Department responded to the scene.
