As of 1:45 p.m. Thursday, 61 percent of Atlantic City Electric customers in Maurice River Township were without power. 89 customers in Commercial Township were, too. 

"The outage occurred due to strong winds that caused a tree limb to come in contact with energy infrastructure on Delsea Drive. Crews will work to restore service as quickly and safely as possible." Frank Tedesco, Public Relations Specialist for Atlantic City Electric, said. 

All customers are expected to be restored by this afternoon.   


This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I'm forecasting South Jersey for you.
