TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — About 1,200 New Jersey utility customers remain without electricity more than one week after an October snowstorm slammed parts of the state.
But officials say all of them should have their power restored by Sunday night at the latest.
Those still without power late Sunday afternoon were Jersey Central Power & Light customers. Two other utilities — PSE&G and Orange and Rockland — said Sunday that their storm-related outages had been resolved.
In recent days, all three utilities have mostly been repairing a large number of single lines from poles to homes and businesses.
At the storm’s peak, about 700,000 customers were without power in New Jersey.
