STATE – Most New Jersey residents who lost electrical service after Hurricane Irene have had their power restored. As of 9 a.m. this morning, 15,000 PSE&G customers remained without power. In their most recent update, JCP&L said that 69,000 customers were still without service. The utilities have restored power for nearly 1.4 million New Jersey customers who were affected by the storm.
PSE&G expects to fully restore power by Friday midnight for remaining customers in Bergen, Hudson, Essex, Passaic, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer counties. Customers in Union, Middlesex and Somerset counties, where power restoration has been hampered by severe flooding, are expected to have service restored by Sunday.
JCP&L also expected to restore power to the majority of its affected customers by the weekend.
