Power has been restored to more than 2,000 Atlantic City Electric customers who experienced a brief outage this afternoon.

Much of the outages were concentrated in Hamilton Township, where more than 1,300 were in the dark. Several hundred customers were also affected in Egg Harbor Township and Pleasantville.

It was not clear what caused the outages, but the region has seen intermittent strong winds and rain for the start of the Memorial Day weekend.
