Power Outages Up in Teaneck, Report Says
Some outages could continue into the weekend, according to latest utility work schedule.
About 3,000 Public Service Electric and Gas customers were without power in Teaneck Tuesday morning, up from yesterday's total, according to an updated company work schedule.
On Monday morning, PSE&G reported 2,842 customers out, but Tuesday's report showed 3,118 of Teaneck's 15,892 customers without service.
According to the work plan, 322 were expected to come back online Tuesday, followed by 395 Wednesday, 469 Thursday and 1,353 on Friday. The company expected to repair 406 on Saturday and 173 on Sunday.
An original work schedule projected having all of the town restored last weekend. Another schedule showed an increase in local customers without service.
PSE&G has stressed the schedules were only projections and could change at any point.
"Our work plan is prioritized by where we can restore the maximum number of customers in the shortest possible time, the critical nature of some operations e.g. schools and polling places, and is affected by a number of technical considerations including the ability to access roads and equipment," the company said.
The company's customer service line can be reached at 1-800-436-7734 to report outages.
