Suddenlink seeks to locate outages
Suddenlink customers who experienced a loss of service for reasons other than power-related outages should contact the company, said Michael Kelemen, Suddenlink's director of government relations.
Affected customers should call 1-800-972-5757 "so that a Suddenlink representative can be scheduled to visit the home to determine and repair the problem," Kelemen said. "Credit may then be applied to the account."
Utility sends crews to New Jersey
Appalachian Power will send crews to New Jersey today to help with storm recovery efforts there, said company spokeswoman Jeri Matheney.
About 150,000 Appalachian Power customers in West Virginia lost their electric service after Superstorm Sandy hit on Monday, Oct. 29. The company had 90 percent of its customers back online on Friday, Nov. 2; 98 percent on Sunday evening; and power was reported fully restored Monday.
The utilities that serve New Jersey were reporting on Tuesday that hundreds of thousands of people in that state were still without power. One of those utilities, PSE&G, said it expected to have virtually all of its customers back in service by Friday.
