Slow but steady, crews are making progress turning the lights back on in the Northeastern states hardest hit by the weekend winter storm.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Power was restored in Massachusetts to about 60,000 customers bringing the total outages to 344,000. Connecticut outages were down to 31,000. And lights were on for nearly everyone in Maine and New Hampshire after more than 15,000 went dark during the storm.

At its peak, the storm knocked out power to about 650,000 customers. By the evening, the numbers were down to about 560,000.
