NEWARK - Power has been mostly restored to residents in Newark and East Orange after PSE&G reported thousands had lost electricity Sunday afternoon.

Earlier in the afternoon, PSE&G's online outage center had reported 10,000 outages in East Orange and close to 7,300 in Newark.

The outages prompted East Orange General Hospital to fall back on generators and divert emergency patients to other hospitals.
