Over 300,000 Still Without Power After Nor’easter Hits Massachusetts – CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – Hundreds of thousands of businesses and homes are still without power in Massachusetts after a powerful nor’easter brought down trees and wires, and for some people the restoration could take days.

Roughly half a million homes and businesses lost power at one point Wednesday as strong winds from the nor’easter hit eastern Massachusetts. The outages hit a high of roughly 499,000 by mid-morning and slowly began to decline.

According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, the number of customers currently without electricity was 320,381 as of 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.

The hardest hit areas were on the South Shore, Cape Cod and Cape Ann.
