SEWAREN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — One New Jersey utility company says it has restored power to most customers affected by a one-two punch of storms that hit the region the last two weeks.

Public Service Electric & Gas said that while it had restored power to “virtually all customers,” it realizes there are customers still without service because of the storms or because of localized issues with their electric service.

The utility said it would continue to perform repairs on a 24/7 basis.

PSE&G’s job was made more difficult as a result of the Sewaren switching station going out of service earlier Monday.

However, the utility said the all customers affected were restored by about 4:15 p.m.

Customers who don’t have service in a neighborhood that has power are being asked to call 800 436-7734.

PSE&G said “a crew will be assigned to complete the work.”

The utility also reminded customers that it may need to take a circuit out of service for a period of time that will interrupt power to some customers, in order to complete other repairs.
