Power has been restored to several communities in northern New Jersey. Tens of thousands of customers lost power for a few hours Thursday evening.

The outage affected towns in southwest Bergen County and northeast Hudson County, right across the Hudson River from New York.

At one point, approximately 24,000 PSE&G customers were without power because of a failure in the Bergen Switching Station in Ridgefield, PSE&G said.

Video from SkyFoxHD showed a large swath of the region in the dark.
