Northeast Storm Leaves Nearly 600K Without Power

Utility crews are making headway as they try to restore power following a winter storm that pounded the Northeast with heavy snow, rain and hurricane-force winds.

More than 1 million homes and businesses lost power during Friday's storm. As of Saturday morning, nearly 600,000 customers were still without power.

New Hampshire's electrical grid is the hardest hit, with more than a quarter million customers still without power. New York has more than 170,000 outages and Maine about 75,000.

Gusting winds created near-blizzard conditions in some areas that have faced three strong storms this month. Parts of New York got more than two feet of snow, while Maine and Massachusetts got hit with wind and loads of rain. The highest wind reported was 91 mph off Portsmouth, N.H.
