NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- New Jerseyans are digging out from the latest huge storm to hit the state, but at least they are doing it with lights and power.
The state's two largest utilities are reporting minimal outages from the nor'easter that dumped up to a foot of snow in some areas of northeastern New Jersey.
Public Service Electric & Gas says it had 16 customer outages as of 5:30 a.m. Saturday. At one point 2,200 customers in Elizabeth were affected, but PSE&G says they were restored Friday night. Jersey Central Power & Light, the state's second-largest utility, reports 16 outages at 7 a.m.
It's a far cry from the 2.7 million customers left in the dark after Superstorm Sandy last October, or a similar number affected by a snowstorm in October 2011.
