Weather-related power outages darkened homes in four South Jersey counties Tuesday night, as severe thunderstorms cut service to some 33,000 PSE&G customers in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer Counties.
Paul Holandez, a spokesman for the utility, told NJ Pen that service crews would be working overnight to restore power.
An interactive map of the service region indicates that roughly 11,500 customers in Camden County, or 8 percent, were affected by the outages, with the majority expected to get their power back on by midnight.
According to the map, hardest hit was Cherry Hill, where more than 3,900 customers were affected; second only to that was Camden City with 3,200 of its residents out of power.
Holandez said that customers should call 800-436-7734 to report gas emergencies.
