Power has been restored to the majority of about 24,000 PSE&G customers who were briefly in the dark Thursday evening after a power failure at a switching station.

PSE&G says the outage, which affected several northern New Jersey towns near the George Washington Bridge, was due to a failure in the Bergen switching station in Ridgefield that interrupted service to four substations in Bergen and Hudson counties.

A company spokeswoman said power had been restored to about 20,000 customers as of Thursday evening, and they were working to bring the remaining 4,000 customers back online.

Towns reporting power outages included Fairview, Edgewater, Cliffside Park, North Bergen, Palisades Park and surrounding areas.

The towns all border the Hudson River, directly across the water from Manhattan.
