Storms Leave Area Residents Without Power

STATE – Severe storms passed through New Jersey yesterday afternoon, felling trees and power lines and causing travel delays.

Perth Amboy was particularly hard-hit, causing Mayor Wilda Diaz to declare a state of emergency.


Diaz advised residents to stay away from downed power lines and treat all wires as being live.

PSE&G said that approximately 5,000 customers were without power this morning, many in Perth Amboy.

New Jersey Transit trains are operating on or close to schedule this morning.
