39,000 Remain Without Power A Week After Irene

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - More than 39,000 households and businesses along the Eastern Seaboard that lost power during Irene remained without it a week after the storm.

Connecticut had about 13,000 customers still without power Sunday night. Virginia had fewer than 12,000 still in the dark, and New York also had about 12,000, mostly on Long Island.

In New Jersey, where President Barack Obama toured flood-ravaged Paterson on Sunday, about 2,000 had no electricity. More than 9 million customers lost power during the storm.

Scattered outages remained in North Carolina on Sunday. Just a handful of customers still had no power in Rhode Island and Vermont, where entire towns were isolated by flooding. A utility
spokeswoman said the outages remain where washed-out roads made it impossible to get to customers.
