TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Thousands of utility customers in southern New Jersey are still without power, four days after a line of powerful storms blew across the state.

Atlantic City Electric says about 34,700 customers were still without service early Saturday night, mainly in Gloucester and Camden counties.

The region was among the hardest hit by Tuesday’s severe weather, and nearly 280,000 utility customers were without power during the height of the storms. Officials have said that’s about 60,000 more customers than those who lost power during Superstorm Sandy in that same area.

Meanwhile, PSE&G; announced Saturday that all of its customers affected by Tuesday’s ferocious storms had been restored. The utility also said it would be working over the next few days to make a number of temporary repairs permanent.
