BOSTON (CBS) – Hundreds of thousands of businesses and homes are still without power in Massachusetts after a powerful nor’easter brought down trees and wires, and for some people the restoration could take days.

According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, the number of customers currently without electricity was 333,798 as of 5:30 a.m. on Thursday.
