A powerful rainstorm that impacted New Jersey on Wednesday caused damage around the state and left tens of thousands of New Jerseyans without power.
PSE&G was reporting over 12,00 customers without power as of 9 p.m. – a majority in Hackensack, Newark and Paterson. JCP&L reported more than 30,000 customers without power as well.
Utility crews were out in full force Wednesday night making repairs and attempting to bring the power back on.
Some of the outages were caused by downed trees. A News 12 crew was out in Englewood Cliffs where a tree came down on power lines near Johnson Avenue and Wunsch Way. PSE&G crews were on the scene there making repairs.
The heavy rain and strong winds also caused flooding around the state, both inland and along the coast.
The rain is expected to last into Thursday morning.
