Crews Assessing Damage from Storm, Making Repairs to Restore Service

Severe Storms Leave More than 250,000 Without Power 

MAYS LANDING, N.J. — Atlantic City Electric crews are out assessing damage and making repairs after severe storms moved through the region and left more than 250,000 customers without power Tuesday evening.

Damage is still being assessed, but several high-voltage transmission lines were affected. In addition to internal crews, Atlantic City Electric has contractors available. The company has also requested mutual assistance crews to assist in the restoration effort.
