Millions of New Jerseyans Without Power

More than 1.2 million utility customers in New Jersey are without electricity due to the superstorm that’s pummeling the state with rain and strong winds.

Jersey Central Power & Light reports 664,552 customers without service, mostly in Ocean and Monmouth counties. The utility also shut down power to the barrier islands there Monday night in a bid to protect equipment and speed up restoration efforts once the storm has passed.

Most island residents were evacuated ahead of the storm.

Public Service Electric & Gas says 400,000 customers are without power. Atlantic City Electric has 139,495 outages.

The utilities say it may take until Wednesday before their crews can make a full assessment of the damage.

Nearly 2 million customers lost power when Tropical Storm Irene hit the state last year.
