Power Slowly Being Restored To Storm-Damaged Towns

Posted: Updated:

Power companies are working around the clock to restore power to the residents of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. 

The latest numbers are a huge step in the right direction.

PECO estimates 375,000 are without power - many of those in the dark are in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.  To date, they have restored 475,000 to full power.

PSE & G says that they have restored 30% of the 1.5 million customers who lost electricity as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

They have approximately 900,000 still in the dark.   They have deemed Sandy "the worst storm in PSE & G's history" because of major flooding in their substations.

Atlantic City Electric customers have 19,208 people without power in Cape May county.
