Several South Jersey communities are reporting power outages, due to Wednesday's coastal storm. 

According to the Atlantic City Electric outage map, Ocean City had more than 12,000 customers without power, but there were no outages in Ocean City as of 6 p.m. Wednesday, said Frank Tedesco, Atlantic City Electric's senior communications specialist.

More than 380 customers were experiencing outages in Hamilton Township. More than 700 customers were without electricity near the Victoria Crossing condominiums.

About 1,300 people were without power at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Mays Landing, Tedesco said.

Crews are responding to reported outages, and power is estimated to be restored between 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

"These numbers are constantly changing as customers are put back in service. We are still experiencing high winds, and the accumulation of the heavy, wet snow could continue to snap tree branches that may come in contact with power lines and cause additional outages," Tedesco said.

In addition to Atlantic Electric's internal crews, we have overhead line contractors and tree crew personnel assisting in the restoration effort, Tedesco said.

"We ask residents to stay clear of any downed wires," Tedesco said.

Residents can report an outage or downed wire by calling 800-833-7476.
