Nearly 200,000 Residents Still Powerless After Winter Storm

Nearly 200,000 homes and business are still without power Monday in the Northeast as utility crews from as far away as Michigan and Maryland continue to help local crews.

They're removing trees that knocked down power lines and replacing utility poles that snapped during last week's winter storm.

More than 83,000 utility customers still lack electricity in New Hampshire, the hardest-hit state. New York has about 87,000 outages and Maine 23,000. More than a million utility customers throughout the region lost power at the peak of the storm.

Smaller outage numbers were reported in other states.

The slow-moving storm battered the region with heavy snow, rain and high winds on Thursday and Friday.
