More Than 150 Still Without Power in Fort Lee Thursday, PSE&G Reports
The latest company estimate projects full service restoration Saturday.
More than 160 PSE&G customers in Fort Lee were without electricity Thursday morning, ten days after Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to much of the borough.
In an updated company work schedule, PSE&G said 165 local customers were still in the dark Thursday. Full service to Fort Lee was projected to be restored Saturday, according to the plan.
Despite the continued outages, the amount of customers without power has gone down in recent days, according to utility company work plans. On Wednesday morning, PSE&G reported 1,791 customers without service in Fort Lee.
In a statement Thursday, PSE&G said 70,000 of its customers remained out from Hurricane Sandy and another 40,000 from Nor'easter Athena.
The progress of repair work has not always met the company's publicly released estimates. Work plans in the days shortly after Sandy said PSE&G would restore all Fort Lee customers by Monday.
Wednesday's snowstorm also delayed power restoration work, PSE&G CEO Ralph LaRossa said, according to the Associated Press.
