FACTBOX-Storm knocks out power to near 1.7 mln in U.S. Mid Atlantic, Northeast

    March 2 (Reuters) - U.S. Mid Atlantic, Midwest and Northeast utilities said almost 1.7
million homes and businesses were without power on Friday as a snow and ice storm battered the
region.
    That is down from a high near 1.8 million affected by the storm as utilities in the South
and Midwest return customers to service, while the storm knocked out more homes and businesses
in the Northeast.
    Most of the current outages were in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan and
New York.
