Power Back For Thousands After Storm
Service has mostly been restored to thousands of electric customers who lost power when severe
thunderstorms moved through New Jersey.
Atlantic City Electric officials say roughly 16,000 customers lost power at the height of Friday’s storms, which knocked down trees and power lines throughout the region and dropped several inches of rain in some spots.
The utility said service had been restored to about 15,100 customers by late Saturday afternoon. And nearly all customers were expected to have their power back by sometime Saturday night.
There are still about 320 customers according to the Atlantic City Electric outage map still without power from Friday as of Sunday morning.
JCP+L and PSE+G has restored all service lost from Friday.
