Utility crews were working to restore electricity to more than 400,000 customers across New England while keeping a wary eye on the skies and the still-turbulent weather whirling across the region Thursday.

In Massachusetts, an estimated 153,084 customers were without power as of about 3 p.m. Some of those people have been in the dark since a powerful ocean storm overnight brought heavy rain and damaging winds that gusted up to 90 miles per hour in Provincetown and 70 miles per hour at Logan International Airport in Boston.

Terry MacCormack, a spokesman for Governor Charlie Baker’s administration, said in a statement that the “Baker-Polito Administration and MEMA are monitoring conditions across the Commonwealth and will continue coordinating response efforts with local officials and utility companies to clean up debris, restore power and support our communities as they recover from this powerful storm.’’
