TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Utility crews have restored service to most homes and businesses in New Jersey that lost electricity.

But about 3,000 are still without power one day after an icy storm snapped tree limbs and power lines.

The state’s largest utility, PSE&G;, is reporting 2,700 customers are without service, mostly in Mercer county. The utility says crews face substantial tree and equipment damage.

PSE&G; officials say they expect most of their customers will see their power restored by midnight Thursday. The company says more than 100,000 customers have been restored since the height of Wednesday’s storm.

JCP&L; has about 270 outages, mainly in Hunterdon County.
