PSEG: Full Power in Fair Lawn, Saddle Brook by Midnight Saturday

More than 95 percent of customers in both Fair Lawn and Saddle Brook have regained power, but the unlucky few who are still out should expect to be back on the grid by midnight Saturday, according to PSEG.

Barring any additional outages or restoration delays brought about by Wednesday's nor'easter, both Fair Lawn and Saddle Brook should be completely back on the grid by midnight Saturday, according to PSEG's most recent restoration schedule.

As of Wednesday morning, 607, or 4.5 percent, of Fair Lawn customers and 107, or 1.6 percent, of Saddle Brook customers were still without power.

Crews are expected to finish up in Fair Lawn by midnight Friday and in Saddle Brook by midnight Saturday.

A number of municipal services continue to be affected in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and in anticipation of Wednesday's winter storm.
