More than 350 Remain Without Power in South Jersey

More than 350 people remained without power Sunday morning after strong storms swept through South Jersey on Saturday, leaving flooding and power outages in their wake.

Atlantic City Electric's website said that 375 customers remained without power about 7:15 a.m. Sunday, the bulk of whom are in Camden County.

The storms that blew through the area initially left about 2,000 people in the dark, an AC Electric spokesperson said, but the company restored power to most of them by morning. Other counties still seeing the most outages Sunday morning were Burlington, Cumberland and Gloucester, although AC Electric reported fewer than 100 customers with power in each of those counties.

There was no time estimate for when power may be restored to those still in the dark.

Nearly 2,000 people were left in the dark Saturday following severe storms in South Jersey.

The storms brought down wires and damaged trees due to high winds, heavy rain and lightning. A spokesperson for Atlantic City Electric said that nearly 2,000 customers were without power during the peak of the storm. As of 10:30 p.m., over 1800 AC Electric customers were without power.

The storms also caused flooding in parts of South Jersey, including Winslow Township and Atco.  Lightning also struck two women at Point Pleasant Beach, Ocean County. Both women suffered minor injuries.
