FACTBOX-Over 100,000 still without power after U.S. mid-Atlantic storm

    March 7 (Reuters) - U.S. mid-Atlantic and northeastern utilities said
over 100,000 homes and businesses were still without power on Wednesday
after a snow and ice storm battered the region with violent winds late
last week.
    In addition, a new snow storm in the region has caused further outages
and slowed restoration efforts following the damage caused last week.
    More than 2 million customers were affected in the U.S. Midwest,
Southeast, mid-Atlantic and Northeast by last week's storm.
    The utilities said they expect to restore service to most of the
affected customers by the end of Wednesday but warned that those in the
hardest-hit areas may have to wait until later in the week.
    Most of the current outages were in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York
and Maryland.
    
    The following lists major outages according to the utilities'
websites:
