PSE&G storm update

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

PSE&G says the number of power outages have quickly decreased and expects everyone to be fully restored to by Sunday. 

As of 10:00 p.m., the utility company said only 130 outages remain from Hurricane Sandy and that power has now been restored to 99.9 percent of the 1.7 million customers impacted.

PSE&G says only 740 outages remain from the Nor'easter Wednesday night.

Most of these outages result from localized issues that were not corrected when a system or circuit outage was restored. These include damaged electrical service lines that lead from the pole to a customer's home or business.  

The company asks if your neighbors have had their power restored and you are still out, please call customer service at 1 800-436-7734. If their automated system indicates that power has been restored to your area and you have no power, please follow the prompts to place a new "no power" order. If the system states that your order already is registered, there is no need to place a new one. Unless customers call to report an outage, PSE&G may not know that there is still an issue at a particular location.
