Utility restores power to most in South Jersey

MAYS LANDING, N.J. - July 28, 2010

Atlantic City Electric says most of the 97 customers are in Cumberland County. The utility hopes to restore service sometime Wednesday.

Initially, 68,000 customers lost electricity in South Jersey.

The National Weather Service says a "microburst straight wind" packing wind gusts of 70 to 80 mph downed trees and utility poles as thunderstorms broke the heat wave.
