The state's official websites appear to be operating normally this morning following a power failure at the state's primary data center Thursday took down most state agency computers and websites.

Official New Jersey state website loads up on Friday morning

Checks of the Motor Vehicle Commission, Department of Labor & Workforce Development and the official state website show they all load normally for users.

Power was restored by Thursday afternoon, but technicians worked through the night to bring agency websites, email systems and computers back online.

Treasury Department Spokesman William Quinn says the outage happened around 2 p.m. Thursday and affected many sites and computer systems used by the public, such as the home page and the website for unemployment benefits.

Quinn says technicians will monitor the systems and be ready to act if there are any residual problems Friday.

Motor vehicle offices statewide had to close early Thursday, after their computer system crashed.
