TRENTON - FEMA crews assessed damage from this weekend's severe storms in southern New Jersey.

Five days after severe thunderstorms slammed into the area, some 16,000 homes and businesses are still without electricity.

Atlantic City Electric crews have been restoring power nonstop since the storm hit early Saturday. They hope to have a majority of their customer's power restored by midnight on Friday.

At the peak of the outage, 206,000 power customers in New Jersey were without electricity.

Meanwhile, conditions are still harsh for those without power. Forecasters expect high temperatures to remain in the 90s every day through Sunday.
