Sandy slams Mass., hundreds of thousands lose power

Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest storms ever to hit the East Coast, pummeled Massachusetts on Monday with punishing winds and dangerously high seas, flooding some coastal areas, and cutting power to hundreds of thousands of customers.

Utility companies that service the state at one point reported nearly 380,000 customers without power on Monday. That number had fallen to about 310,000 as of 3:15 a.m. on Tuesday.
