Three days after Hurricane Irene passed through our area more than 130,000 people are still without power in Massachusetts.
Utilities officials say that they're working as hard as they can to restore power but it still may be days before thousands of homes get their power back.

According to Reed, it could take days to restore power to the hardest hit areas.
