Power Shortage Because Of The Severe Thunderstorms

On Tuesday in South Jersey, the utility teams made some development with the objective of electricity restoration in the hundreds of houses and businesses that lost their electricity because of the thunderstorms that visited the said regions for the past weekend.

According to the Atlantic City Electric, the approximate number of homes and businesses whose electricity were not restored is 56,300 which is already okay because during the severe thunderstorms, the previous number was about 206,000.

On the other hand as of Tuesday night, there are still 4,100 homes as well as the businesses that do not have an electricity service in Gloucester County while the number in Camden County is 500 and 1,700 in the Burlington County.

Cumberland and Atlantic were the counties that were really hit by the thunderstorms that include lightning and forceful winds.

According to the utility officials, the electricity service should be bring back and reestablished to most of the homes and businesses by tonight even though it can possibly take up until Friday so that all consumers can have their electricity supply back.

Power shortage and the pain caused by hot weather will be experienced by some customers because the temperature for today is expected to be high.

The almost 2,000 lands of fields, woodlands and campsites of Parvin State Park will still be closed and will be open after the authorities will give a further notice about opening it. The acres were closed because of the claim of the authorities that the lands are on a dangerous condition.

The massive and enormous tidying effort is in progress. By the way, the severe thunderstorms murdered two young individuals who are campers. The power lines were fallen in the park end to end with the hundreds of trees that blocked the road and rail network and trails and the cabins as well as the other buildings were heavily damaged.
