Over 200,000 customers were without power as of Saturday morning. Atlantic City Electric officials say they are going through the assessment process now and it is too early to say when individual communities can expect power back. The entire process of power restoration is expected to take place over several days. Winds in excess of 70 miles per hour uprooted trees and blew down limbs, which brought down numerous power lines and broke crossarms and poles.
Customers are urged to report outages by calling 1-800-833-7476. Customers can also receive outage updates by visiting www.atlanticcityelectric.com, following us on Facebook and Twitter at ACElecConnect and downloading our mobile app at www.atlanticcityelectric.com/mobileapp.
