TRENTON - (AP) - Utility crews in southern New Jersey continue to restore power to homes and businesses that lost electricity during severe thunderstorms that struck the region last weekend.

Atlantic City Electric says about 56,300 homes and businesses are still without service. That's down from about 206,000 at the height of the storm.

Atlantic and Cumberland counties were hardest hit by the storms, which contained strong winds and lightning.

Utility officials say service should be restored to most customers by Wednesday night, though it could take until Friday for all customers to have their power back.

Those without power are facing another stretch of hot weather. Highs temperatures are expected to remain in the 90s all week.
