An increase in manpower will help JCP&L restore most New Jersey outages by Saturday evening, according to a statement released Friday afternoon.

An additional 1,200 line workers joined the nearly 7,000 workers already on the ground in New Jersey on Friday.

After winter storm Athena caused JCP&L's power outage numbers to increase by more than 100,000 from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning, both the company and Gov. Chris Christie have said Sunday should bring the state's residents relief.

JCP&L reported Friday at noon that 163,309 of its nearly 1.1 million customers were without power. However, that number dropped to 110,468 by Friday night at 10 p.m.

Municipalities in Patch's coverage area in Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Passaic and Warren counties continued to see a large number of homes without power, especially Bernards Township, Warren, Hopatcong and Long Valley.

The following were reports from JCP&L and PSE&G:
