PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Utility crews are making progress in restoring power to thousands of Rhode Islanders, but many homes and businesses remain without electricity following the winter storm.
National Grid says some 72,000 utility customers remained without power Sunday morning. Officials say they hope to eliminate the remaining outages by early this week.
Areas most affected by the continuing outages include Newport and Bristol counties and communities along the state’s southern coast.
Officials urged drivers to remain cautious, as some traffic lights are affected by outages.
At T.F. Green Airport outbound flights were planned to resume Sunday afternoon. Public transit service was scheduled to resume Monday.
No deaths or serious accidents were reported from the storm, which brought heavy wind and more than two feet of snow to some parts of the state.
