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.
