Power Outages Kept Low in NJ

Widespread power outages predicted in the wake of Friday’s nor’easter have not materialized in New Jersey.

By late Saturday morning, about 5,000 customers in the state were without power. About 4,900 of those are customers of Atlantic City Electric in Atlantic County, with a handful of customers in Gloucester County also awaiting restoration.

The state’s two largest utilities reported minor outages. PSE&G had just 16 customers without service, while JCP&L reported fewer than 25. Orange & Rockland Electric reported no outages in New Jersey.

More than 2 million customers lost power after Superstorm Sandy last October and after an October 2011 snowstorm.
