BOSTON (AP) - More than 170,000 homes and businesses in Massachusetts remain without power after a nor'easter dropped a foot or more of snow in the region.

National Grid was reporting about 134,000 outages, mostly north of Boston, on Friday morning. Eversource was reporting about 36,000 outages in the state.

Connecticut's two major utilities had about 60,000 outages early Friday, mostly along coastal areas. Rhode Island had about 1,600 outages.

Utilities say it could be days before power is restored to everyone, as hundreds of line crews struggle with downed wires and roads blocked by downed trees.
