A week after Irene, thousands still without power in NJ

TRENTON, N.J. - September 3, 2011

The storm knocked out service to more than 1.5 million customers in the Garden State.

And nearly 16,000 - mostly Jersey Central Power & Light customers - still had no power as of 3 p.m.

But JCP&L says the majority of those customers will be restored by midnight, while small groups of customers in severely flooded areas should be restored sometime Sunday.
