Rush On To Restore Power In Northeast As Another Winter Storm Looms

Mar 6, 2018

BOSTON - Utilities are racing to restore power to tens of thousands of customers in the Northeast still without electricity after last week's storm as another nor'easter threatens the hard-hit area with heavy, wet snow, high winds - and more outages.
 
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning that stretches from eastern Pennsylvania, across most of New England, from late Tuesday night into Thursday morning.
 
More than a foot of snow is forecast for some interior areas.
 
Meanwhile, about 250,000 homes and business across the Northeast remain without power, down from about 2 million at the last storm's peak.
 
Con Edison says it still had 28,000 Westchester County, New York, customers without power on Tuesday morning, but expects to have the ``vast majority'' restored by 11 p.m.
 
National Grid says it hope to restore electricity to its Massachusetts and Rhode Island customers by midnight.
