PSE&G expects to restore most service by day’s end

    Fewer than 5,000 PSE&G customers are without service and the utility company plans to restore most service by tonight.

    As of late yesterday, around 4,800 customers were without service — mostly due to issues that require extra attention, like flooding or downed trees or poles.

    Here’s a rough timeline of when most customers can expect to see service:

    Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer Counties: Thursday evening
    Essex and Passaic Counties sometime: Friday morning
    Bergen and Hudson Counties: early Friday evening
    Middlesex, Somerset and Union Counties: by Sunday

    Restoration time for those whose gas service was proactively shut off will depend on floodwaters recede.
