FACTBOX-Near 250,000 still without power after U.S. mid-Atlantic storm

    March 6 (Reuters) - U.S. mid-Atlantic and northeastern utilities said
almost 250,000 homes and businesses were still without power on Tuesday after
a snow and ice storm battered the region with violent winds late last week.

    More than 2 million customers were first affected by the storm.
    The utilities expect to restore service to most of the affected customers
by later Tuesday but warned that those in the hardest hit areas may have to
wait a few more days, they said.
    New York’s Consolidated Edison Inc, one of the harder hit
utilities, said it had restored power to more than 111,000 of the 138,000
customers who lost service and expected to bring back the vast majority of
the rest by the end of Tuesday.
    Most of the current outages were in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania,
Massachusetts and Maryland.
    
    The following lists major outages according to the utilities' websites:
