About 100K Without Power In NJ

Utility crews around New Jersey are making progress restoring electricity that was lost when powerful winds downed power lines.

About 100,000 customers statewide are without service Monday. That’s down from a peak of 235,000.

The state’s largest utility, Public Service Electric & Gas, says about 72,000 customers remain without power.

JCP&L crews are restoring service to about 27,000 customers. Most are located in Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties. JCP&L hopes to finish repairs by late Monday or early Tuesday.
