RAMSEY - Regulators held their second hearing into how New Jersey's utilities responded to Hurricane Sandy.

Residents and public officials were able to comment between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Ramsey High School.

At the first hearing on Monday, people complained about Jersey Central Power & Light's response to power outages caused by Sandy.

The Board of Public Utilities said JCP&L was hit hardest with 90 percent of its customers losing service. JCP&L restored service to 1.3 million customers in the first 13 days after Sandy.
