Electricity that went out during Monday’s severe storms is nearly fully restored in New Jersey.

Jersey Central Power and Light hopes to have 1,362 homes and businesses reconnected Friday. Most are in Mercer County.

The state’s largest utility, PSE&G, restored service to all of its customers affected by the storm on Thursday.

More than 360,000 statewide were without power during the height of the storms, which packed strong winds, downing trees and power lines.
