Power Outages

Atlantic City Electric said Saturday it continued to request mutual assistance from its utility partners.

The company says safety is paramount. Customers should evacuate their homes if directed. If customers see downed wires, stay clear and report them to 1-800-833-7476. Downed wires and standing water can be a fatal combination.

As soon as safely possible, damage assessors will be surveying the storm's impact. The company will issue an estimated restoration time for bringing power back up to all customers. These estimates will be refined as restoration work progresses.

If your power goes out, call 1-800-833-7476 and take advantage of the automated reporting system. Do not assume your neighbor has called. Always request a callback to verify your power has been restored.
