If you see or hear a low flying helicopter around the shore area for the next few days, don't panic. 

JCP&L is conducting its annual vegetation management aerial patrol in Ocean & Monmouth county communities.   The inspections happen between April and September.

Aerial patrols consist of Transmission Forestry Supervision personnel that accompany the pilot in order to identify effectiveness of prior year's herbicide application and identification of any conditions warranting further inspection from the ground, according to a release from JCP&L via the Patch of Middletown.

The utility says they will be done by Monday.
