As of 9:00 a.m. EST November 16, there are 2,129 customers without power in the state of New York. At the peak of reported outages shortly after Hurricane Sandy, there were about 8.5 million people without power, according to the Department of Energy.

About 150,276 reported blackouts following the nor'easter storm, according to the DOE.

New Jersey

Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L), a FirstEnergy unit, reports that it has restored power to virtually all affected customers affected by Hurricane Sandy and the Nor'easter.

In the Barrier Islands and some of the shoreline communities where the storm devastation is most severe, the company estimates that there are 30,000 customers who cannot be restored. JCP&L is working with state and local officials on developing and implementing a full restoration plan and timeline to connect these affected customers safely.

Atlantic City Electric (ACE) has restored power to all those affected by Hurricane Sandy who are able to receive power. ACE reported there are still about 5,000 customers, who, because of extensive damage to their homes, cannot accept electric service at this time. The utility will restore electricity to those homes once it is safe to do so.

New York

Con Edison reported that is has restored power to all customers, affected by Sandy and the Nor'easter, who can receive power. The company said that in its shoreline communities of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, there are 2,338 customers who cannot get electrical service until their own internal equipment is repaired, tested and certified by an electrician as ready for service.

The company is working with the New York City Buildings Department to expedite the restoration of these customers.

Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) reported November 13 that it has restored nearly all of its customers affected by the storms who can safely receive power. There are 6,460 customers in Nassau, Long Beach, and Suffolk and 24,000 in the Rockaways who are unable to safely receive power without repairs.

LIPA is working with local jurisdictions to complete needed surveys to determine whether or not electric power can be delivered to customer homes in those areas. LIPA had over 9,400 linemen and tree trim crews working to restore power.

West Virginia

Mon Power, a First Energy Corp. unit, has restored power to all customers in West Virginia affected by Hurricane Sandy.
