Hundreds Of Mass. Residents Remain Without Power

Fewer than 2,000 Massachusetts customers were without power early Friday, days after superstorm Sandy struck the state.

That's down from about 400,000 at the height of the storm Monday night.

National Grid reported about 800 of the utility's customers were still offline early Friday morning. NStar was reporting about 850 customers still without electricity. Western Massachusetts Electric Co. was reporting just a few dozen outages and Unitil was reporting full restoration.

National Grid said it will send crews to help restoration efforts in other areas hammered by Sandy. NStar said its crews will focus next on helping its sister company Connecticut Light & Power restore power there.
