After The Storm, Connecticut Slowest To Restore Power

The Christian Science Monitor has this tale of the tape:

"Power outages in Connecticut hit 831,000 customers. As of Wednesday morning, power had been restored to about 284,000 of those customers – one-third of the peak."

In Massachusetts, 450,000 customers – almost two-thirds of the peak – had their power back Wednesday.

New Hampshire had 72 percent of outages fixed Wednesday.

What does all this mean? For the second straight major storm, Connecticut is the worst performing Northeast state at restoring power.

We check in with a reporter from the Wall Street Journal and take listener phone calls about the storm.
