Hundreds Without Power in Teaneck, PSE&G Reports

Latest company estimate says full service restored Saturday.

Hundreds Without Power in Teaneck, PSE&G Reports

About 400 Public Service Electric and Gas customers in Teaneck were without electricity Thursday morning, ten days after Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to most of the town. 

In an updated company work schedule, PSE&G said 418 local customers were without electricity. Full service to Teaneck was estimated to be restored Saturday, according to the plan. 

Despite the continued outages, the amount of customers without power has gone down in recent days, according to utility company work plans. On Wednesday morning, PSE&G reported 890 customers without service. 

In a statement Thursday, PSE&G said 70,000 of its customers remained out from Hurricane Sandy and another 40,000 from Nor'easter Athena.

The progress of repair work has not always met the company's publicly released estimates. A first work plan said PSE&G would restore all Teaneck customers the weekend after the storm. 

Wednesday's snowstorm also delayed power restoration work, PSE&G CEO Ralph LaRossa said, according to the Associated Press.
