(AP) – The massive storm that started out as Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast and morphed into a huge and problematic system, killing at least 106 people in the United States. Power outages now stand at more than 1.3 million homes and businesses, down from a peak of 8.5 million. Here’s a snapshot of what is happening, state by state.
State’s large utilities say they’ve met their targets on restoring power in an effort that was closely watched after extensive outages last year. Deaths: 3. Power outages: 35,000, down from a peak of 625,000.
Hundreds of thousands go sixth day without electricity, natural gas remains cut off to barrier islands, subway service to New York still suspended. Some schools reopen. Gov. Chris Christie says he got a hug from Bruce Springsteen at Friday’s benefit concert. Deaths: 23. Power outages: 779,000, down from 2.7 million.
New Yorkers forced from their homes by the storm will be allowed to vote by affidavit ballot at any polling site in the state. Deaths: 47, including 40 in New York City. Power outages: more than 456,000, down from 2.2 million.
All polling locations expected to have power in time for Election Day, only a few by generator. Deaths: 15. Power outages: Fewer than 30,000, down from 1.2 million.
Newport officials say it will cost $2 million to repair the city’s famed Cliff Walk, sometimes cited as Rhode Island’s most visited attraction. Power outages: none, down from more than 122,000.
Red Cross and Southern Baptist Convention provide hot meals and send food and water to those without power after heavy snowfall. Deaths: 6. Power outages: 33,000, down from 270,000.
Other states with storm-related deaths: Maryland (4), New Hampshire (1), North Carolina (3), Ohio (2), Virginia (2).
