BOSTON — More than 220,000 homes and businesses remain without electricity following the massive snowstorm that swept across the Northeast, with most outages in hard-hit Massachusetts.

Utilities in Massachusetts are reporting more than 180,000 of their power customers still in the dark Sunday evening, down from more than 400,000.

The storm started Friday night and dumped up to 3 feet (0.91 meters) of snow and knocked out power to more than 650,000 homes and businesses in eight states, from Maine to Pennsylvania.
