FACTBOX-Over 400,000 still without power after 2nd U.S. northeast storms

March 9 (Reuters) - U.S. mid-Atlantic and northeastern utilities said over 400,000 homes and businesses remained without power on Friday, two days after the second major snow and ice storm in a week battered the region. The latest storm on Wednesday came as utilities had been working to restore power to the remaining 100,000 or so customers left in the dark from a tempest late last week. Between the two storms more than 3 million customers lost power in the U.S. Midwest, Southeast, mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The utilities expected to restore service to most of the affected customers by the end of the week. Most of the current outages were in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut and New York.
