TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A series of severe thunderstorms knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses in New Jersey.

The storms that rolled through the state on Tuesday contained heavy rains and strong winds, which knocked down numerous trees and power lines.

Nearly 38,000 customers were without service at the height of the storm, but that number had been reduced to about 7,000 by early Tuesday night.

Roughly 2,300 PSE&G; customers were still without service. Atlantic City Electric said about 4,600 customers had no power, while JCP&L; had about 800 affected customers.

Most customers were expected to have their service restored by late Tuesday night. But some may have to wait until Wednesday.
