The governor Thursday praised the work of the utilities and utility crews, who have been working 16-hour days.

He said Jersey Central Power & Light's performance in this storm has been "significantly better" than it was during Tropical Storm Irene.

He also cautioned against trying to make villains out of anyone in the disaster.

He says "the villain in this case is Hurricane Sandy."
