MOST POWER IS RESTORED BY AC ELECTRIC

Atlantic City Electric reports that 99 percent of power has been returned to its custoimers. The utility continues to ask customers to report an outage if they have one. The company continues to dispatch crews to localized outage areas in parts of southern New Jersey, where the extensive damage associated with these outages makes restoring service especially challenging.  The majority of remaining outages affect individual customers. Heavily damaged areas where Atlantic City Electric continues to work on Wednesday included Glassboro, Bridgeton and Pleasantville. Atlantic City Electric expects to restore service to all of the estimated 145,000 customers who were impacted by the hurricane by midnight Thursday. However, most of the remaining customers without power will have their service restored before that time. Customers can report outages at 1-800-833-7476.
