National Grid: Power Will Be Restored By End Of Saturday

BOSTON (CBS) – Almost exactly a week after Tropical Storm Irene knocked out power for more than 500,000 Massachusetts residents, service has been restored to almost everyone.

As of Saturday evening, a few hundred people were without power, but both NSTAR and National Grid said that all of those customers would have their electricity back by the end of the day.
