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.

Marcy Reed is the president of National Grid, one of the state's two largest power companies. Reed joined Morning Edition Wednesday to give an update on power outages in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene.

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