Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: An isolated shower or thunderstorm remains possible in the hot and humid air this Saturday, the 4th. Same for Sunday...although NOT a wash-out either day!
BOSTON (February 10, 2013)--More than 345,000 homes and businesses remained without electricity Sunday after the massive snowstorm that swept across the Northeast.
Most of the outages were in hard-hit Massachusetts.
Utilities in Massachusetts are reporting more than 243,000 of their power customers still in the dark Sunday morning, down from more than 400,000.
The storm, which started Friday night, dumped as much as 3 feet of snow and knocked out power to more than 650,000 homes and businesses from Maine to Pennsylvania.
About 73,400 customers in Rhode Island and more than 25,000 in Connecticut still were without power Sunday morning.
Power still had not been restored to 3,000 customers in New York, down from nearly 12,000.
