Northeast snowstorm cleanup

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Utilities in some hard-hit New England states predict that the big Northeast snowstorm could leave some customers in the dark at least until tomorrow.

Emergency crews and residents are clearing roadways and sidewalks following a storm that rampaged through the Northeast, dumping up to 3 feet of snow and bringing winds that knocked out power to hundreds of thousands.

More than 345,000 homes and businesses remain without electricity following the massive snowstorm that swept across the Northeast, with most outages in hard-hit Massachusetts.

The storm started Friday night and dumped up to 3 feet of snow and knocked out power to more than 650,000 homes and businesses from Maine to Pennsylvania.

Some school districts have announced there will be no classes on Monday. That complicates parents' work schedules but leaves kids more time for frolicking in the massive drifts.

At least five deaths in the U.S. are blamed on the storm, including an 11-year-old Boston boy who was overcome by carbon monoxide as he sat in a running car.
