NJ down to 8,500 without power

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Five days after severe thunderstorms slammed into southern New Jersey, some 8,505 utility customers are still without power.

Atlantic City Electric crews have been restoring power nonstop since the storm hit early Saturday.

At the peak of the outage, 206,000 power customers in New Jersey were going without electricity.

The Pepco Holdings Inc. utility says all customers should have power back by sometime Friday.

Meanwhile, conditions are still harsh for those without power. Forecasters expect high temperatures to remain in the 90s every day through Sunday.
