More than 250,000 homes and business are still without power as restoration efforts continue days after a slow-moving storm battered the Northeast with heavy snow, rain and high winds.

More than a million utility customers throughout the region lost power at the peak of the storm. Nearly 100,000 utility customers still lacked electricity in New Hampshire, the hardest-hit state. New York had about 96,000 outages and Maine 36,000.

Smaller outage numbers were reported in other states as hundreds of utility crews continued removing trees that knocked down power lines and replacing utility poles that snapped during the storm that crossed the region Thursday and Friday.
