TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Utility crews in southern New Jersey continue to restore power to homes and businesses that
lost electricity during severe thunderstorms that struck the region last
Atlantic City Electric says about 63,500 homes and businesses are still
without service. That's down from about 206,000 at the height of the storm.
Atlantic and Cumberland counties were hardest hit by the storms, which
contained strong winds and lightning.
Utility officials say service should be restored to most customers by
Wednesday night, though it could take until Friday for all customers to have
their power back.
Those without power are facing another stretch of hot weather. Highs
temperatures are expected to remain in the 90s all week.
