More than 5,300 Mercer County residents still without power Saturday morning

As of 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, about 5,400  PSE&G customers in Mercer County are without power due to downed power lines because of high winds. Across the state, just under 17,795 PSE&G customers are still without power.

Central New Jersey was hit the hardest by the strong winds. Residents across Princeton and residents in Rocky Hill, Montgomery, Hopewell, Pennington, Titusville, Lawrence and West Windsor are still enduring power outages.

More than 1,749 Princeton households are still without power. In Montgomery, more than 2,000 households are without power. In Hopewell, more than 1,000 residents are still without power. In Lawrence, about 400 households are still without power. PSE&G originally estimated that power will be restored by 6 a.m. on Saturday for most households. That estimate has been pushed back to 8 p.m. Saturday for some areas.

The community room at the Princeton municipal building is open if you need to warm up or charge your electronic devices.

Dillon Basketball is cancelled for Saturday due to a power outage at the Hun School.

Report outages to PSE&G at 800-436-7734.
