PSE&G storm update - Dec. 21, 2012 at 4:45 p.m. 
-- At this time, PSE&G is reporting 4,000 remaining outages from today's wind 
and rain storm.  Counties with the most outages are: Essex (2,300) and Bergen 
(700). PSE&G crews will continue to work throughout the night to restore power. 
-- Many of the outages are caused by falling trees and limbs, which bring down 
power lines. Downed wires should always be considered "live."  STAY AWAY FROM 
ALL DOWNED LINES.  Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch 
anything that it might be in contact with.  To report a downed wire and other 
visible equipment damage, call 1-800-436-PSEG and tell PSE&G the nearest cross 
street. 
-- To report a power outage, call PSE&G's Customer Service line: 
1-800-436-PSEG. 
-- Electric crews work to restore power to the largest numbers of customers 
first, taking into account "priority" customers, such as hospitals, police 
stations, fire stations, water and sewer facilities, communications facilities 
(TV, radio, and telephone), and customers on life-sustaining medical equipment. 
 At the same time, the utility restores power to homes and businesses, starting 
with the circuits serving the largest number of customers. 
-- Customers with a handheld device, or who are at an alternate location with 
power, can also report power outages and view the status of their outage by
