PSE&G Hurricane Irene Update: Aug. 28, 2011

Approximately 392,000 PSE&G customers are without power at this time statewide. The number of outages continues to climb as flooding impacts the region. PSE&G has 6,000 employees supporting the restoration effort including 840 PSE&G linemen, 270 out-of-state linemen, an additional 50 crews that have now joined the effort from Ohio, and 540 tree contractors.  The crews are working around the clock. There are over 300,000 customers out and customers should be prepared for potentially lengthy outages of up to seven days.  Those outages due to flooding will take the longest to restore.
In addition to widespread electric outages, the heavy rain and storm surge may result in gas outages. Water could enter the utility's gas distribution system, as well as flood customers' basements and gas appliances. Customers are reminded to call PSE&G to report gas odors and to contact their local municipal officials for direction and assistance in pumping water out of their basements.

Cablevision has also issued the same request stating that they are monitoring the subscribers and will maintain their lines.
