The utility says all customers who lost power were back online as of 2:15PM Sunday afternoon thanks to the efforts of 1500 total personnel working round the ‘clock.

“The derecho was by many accounts the most destructive storm to strike the Mid-Atlantic region since Hurricane Isabel nearly a decade ago. Restoring service has been a mammoth effort involving about 1,500 total personnel,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric Region President. “We appreciate the patience and understanding of our customers who had to cope with outages during record-breaking heat. We thank all personnel dedicated to the restoration effort, our partners at the emergency management agencies who provided critical relief coordination and support, and government officials and the media who assisted with communicating to our valued customers.”

 

NEXT UP: INTERNET CONNECTIONS

Comcast, meanwhile, has still not restored internet service to many of its customers even though electricity has been back for several days reports the Press of Atlantic City.

“Most issues have been directly related to commercial power outages, and for the vast majority of people, service has been restored as power came back to their homes,” Comcast spokeswoman Jennifer Bilotta wrote in an email to the Press.  “With a small number of cases, customers might not have cable service even after power is restored due to more extensive damage caused by fallen debris or other circumstances.”

Mays Landing was especially hard hit says Comcast.
