Jan 4 (Reuters) - U.S. utilities along the East Coast said about 65,000 homes and businesses were without power early Thursday from the massive snow and ice storm battering Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states. That is down from over 81,000 outages at the peak as utilities in the Southeast have restored service after the storm moved north overnight. Most of the current outages are in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Delaware, and Maryland. The giant storm is currently located over coastal parts of New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, and utilities in those states have warned customers to expect outages.
The following lists major outages according to the utilities' websites:
