Small Portions of Galloway Remain Without Power
Full power is expected to return Friday morning.
Power outages continue to fluctuate throughout Galloway Township and Atlantic County on Thursday, Nov. 8, but by Thursday afternoon, only a small portion remained without power.
Outages in the township were reduced drastically from about 1,000 residents earlier Thursday morning, as a result of the Nor'easter that moved through the township.
As of Thursday afternoon, all areas of Galloway, including Pomona, were listed at "less than five outages." Pomona had been hit hardest by outages earlier in the day.
There are 11 without power in Absecon. That number has dropped from over 3,000 Wednesday night.
The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, located in the Pomona section, remained open with all classes and activities to proceed as scheduled, according to its website.
According to Atlantic City Electric representatives, a total of 4,200 people in Atlantic County are without power, and 7,200 customers total are without power. The electric company expects to have power restored to all customers no later than 9 a.m. Friday morning.
The storm moved into the area Wednesday afternoon, bringing with it strong winds, rain and snow.
It's the second major outage in two weeks, as much of Galloway and the county lost power following Superstorm Sandy. The electric company announced all power was restored related to that storm on Tuesday.
