FACTBOX-Over 1 million still lack power after U.S. mid-Atlantic storms
March 8 (Reuters) - U.S. mid-Atlantic and northeastern utilities said over 1 million homes and businesses remained without power on Thursday, the day after a snow and ice storm battered the region. The latest 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 expected to restore service to most of the affected customers by the end of the week. Most of the current outages were in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New York.
