Several Thousand in Mass. Still Without Power

Power-lines3

BOSTON (AP) — Fewer than 4,000 utility customers remain without power in Massachusetts following the weekend snowstorm.

More than 400,000 outages were reported at the height of the storm that left many areas with at least two feet of snow.

As of early afternoon on Wednesday, NStar said it had about 3,900 customers without power. Marshfield, Plymouth, Sandwich and Barnstable were among the hardest-hit communities.

National Grid was down to several dozen, mostly isolated outages.

Gov. Deval Patrick said Wednesday that he was more satisfied with the response by the utilities than he was on the previous day, while adding that he understood the frustration of residents who are still without power.

State officials have said they will assess the response by the utilities to the storm once the restoration process is complete.
