Factbox: Over 750,000 still without power after U.S. mid-Atlantic storm

(Reuters) - U.S. mid-Atlantic and northeastern utilities said over 750,000 homes and businesses were still without power on Thursday after a snow and ice storm battered the region on Wednesday.

That storm came as utilities were working to restore power to the remaining 100,000 or so customers left in the dark from a storm late last week.

Between the two storms more than 3 million customers were affected in the U.S. Midwest, Southeast, mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

The utilities said they expect to restore service to most of the affected customers by the end of the week.

Most of the current outages were in New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New York.

The following lists major outages according to the utilities’ websites:
