The state’s utilities say about 11,000 customers are without power Thursday, down from nearly 46,000.

Jersey Central Power & Light has the most outages, with a little more than 8,000 customers affected.

Public Service Electric & Gas is reporting 2,000 customers without service. Atlantic City Electric has 700 affected customers and 35 for Orange & Rockland.

The National Weather Service says wind gusts hit 63 mph at Sandy Hook, which is still closed three months after Superstorm Sandy.

Rainfall ranged from a quarter of an inch in the south to almost 2 inches in north Jersey.

Flood warnings are posted in northeast Morris County and Bergen and Passaic counties.
