Winter Storm Jonas, bringing high winds and heavy snow, moved into the region last night and is expected to continue through Sunday morning. The storm caused significant damage in Atlantic, Cape May and Ocean counties, leaving more than 40,000 Atlantic City Electric customers without power. Sustained winds of 30 mph to 40 mph with gusts up to 60 mph along the coast have hampered restoration efforts. Crews will assess damage and make repairs when they can work safely. Significant flooding along the coast is also preventing access to areas requiring repair and further delaying restoration. Critical customers who need electricity for life support equipment are advised to seek shelter where power is available. All outages and downed wires should be reported to 1-800-833-7476, through www.atlanticcityelectric.com or through the mobile app, available for downloading at atlanticcityelectric.com/mobileapp. Customers should request a call back to verify their power has been restored.
