PSE&G Hurricane Irene Update: Sep. 2, 2011 at 9:00 p.m.
Outage update -
-- PSE&G is working to restore the remaining 300 customers who are without power as a result of Hurricane Irene. Work will continue tonight through tomorrow to restore all remaining customers in Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties. The utility is now completing isolated complex problems.
-- PSE&G estimates that more than 800,000 electric customers were impacted by the hurricane, with virtually all restored within five days. There will be scattered customers in flood areas whose restoration will be later, pending the recession of flood waters and safety inspections by municipal officials.
-- About 28,700 gas customers are affected by severe flooding. The utility will be working to restore gas service once flood waters recede and it is safe to do so.
**No additional email updates are planned at this time.
