Hundreds of thousands still without power in NJ after storms
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of utility customers remain without power in New Jersey after two major snowstorms hit the state in less than a week.
And forecasters are monitoring another system that could hit the state Monday.
New Jersey’s major utilities reported Friday that more than 123,000 customers were still without service following Wednesday’s nor’easter. Most of them lost their service during the storm, but many haven’t had power since another destructive nor’easter roared in March 2.
The storm also led to the death of a man who drove his vehicle around a barricade in Franklin Lakes and struck a live power line that had been knocked down.
Forecasters say another system could bring more precipitation to the state on Monday, although most models now show it staying to the south.
