PSE&G storm update – March 7, 2018 at 8 p.m.
 
·         PSE&G is reporting 130,000 customers without power due to the heavy, wet snow that resulted in numerous downed trees and power lines across the service territory. Hardest hit counties include: Burlington, Essex, Middlesex, Somerset, Mercer and Bergen counties.  No PSE&G outages remain from Friday’s storm.

·         “Although crews will continue to work through the night, the restoration process will likely take several days given the damage from falling trees that will need to be cleared,” said John Latka, senior vice president of electric and gas operations. “Driving is treacherous and numerous cars litter the roads, making it extremely difficult for our crews to get around. We are mobilizing additional employees to help with damage assessment so that we can better determine restoration times. We ask our customers to be patient as we deal with these difficult conditions and work to safely restore power.”

·         PSE&G’s 16 walk-in customer service centers are expected to open at 10 a.m. Thursday.

·         Downed wires should always be considered “live.” Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that it might be in contact with. 

·         To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, do not run any gasoline-powered engine, including generators and snow blowers, in a garage or any other enclosed space. Clear snow from dryer and hot water heater vents. 

·         PSE&G encourages customers to report downed wires and power outages by logging in to My Account on www.pseg.com, texting the word “OUT” to 4PSEG, or calling PSE&G’s Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG.

·         The utility offers customers a number of ways to stay in touch and informed before, during and after a storm. These tools can be found at PSE&G’s mobile-friendly website www.pseg.com in the “Storm Center.” Updated every 15 minutes, PSE&G’s mobile-friendly “Outage Map” displays the location and status of power outages.
