Fort Lee Outages Down, Full Restoration Possible This Weekend

PSE&G may have to halt repairs due to the latest storm.

The latest PSE&G work schedule shows 1,791 customers still without power in Fort Lee, a slight decline from the more that 2,000 reported out Tuesday.

PSE&G said it planned to restore 702 customers Wednesday, 572 Thursday and 485 on Friday. Another 20 would be restored Saturday, leaving just 12 customers not accounted for on the current schedule. 

The only problem is that schedule could change because of the latest storm.

Although the company has restored service across Fort Lee, some outages have lagged more than eight days after Sandy battered the borough, and Gov. Chris Christie warned a new nor'easter Wednesday could cause more outages in the state. 

The utility company said it expected to continue work, but might have to halt repairs. 

"While work may continue in the rain, federal safety rules prevent line crews from working in bucket trucks when winds are greater than 40 mph. Crews will resume work when it is safe to do so. There are more than 4,000 out-of-state workers in addition to 700 PSE&G technicians working to restore power," PSE&G said in a statement. 

Wind gusts in the Fort Lee area could reach 49 mph Wednesday afternoon, with rain, snow and sleet possible, according to the National Weather Service. Overnight gusts of 55 mph were also possible.

In the latest twist, Thompson's http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net/ successor as the BBC's top executive, George http://www.louisvuittonoutletsc.com Entwistle, resigned on Saturday http://www.burberryscarfoutletvip.com after a November 2 "Newsnight" report http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org wrongly implied that a http://www.coachoutletod.com former British politician http://www.coachoutletpn.com sexually http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net abused a child. After the Savile http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com scandal broke, Times Chairman http://www.coachoutletos.org Arthur Sulzberger Jr. sent the company's staff a letter http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com that said he was satisfied Thompson had http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com no role in the http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net decision to scrap the investigative segment on http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com Savile. The Times did not http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com make Thompson available for interviews on http://www.coachoutletdt.net Monday. A spokesman said he spent his first day on the job meeting with employees and learning the company.
