Jersey Central Power & Light says power has been fully restored to all customers who lost it during Tuesday's snow storm. About 80,000 customers lost power when heavy, wet snow and high winds downed wires and poles over a large area of west-central and northwest New Jersey.

The utility says the last few hundred customers were brought back online late Friday and early Saturday morning.

Unofficial snowfall totals from the freak October storm ranged from 14 inches at High Point State Park to nearly 5 inches at Hackettstown.

Southern portions of the state got heavy rain.
