BOSTON (CBS/AP) – One week after a strong snowstorm hit the Bay State, less than 1,000 customers are still without power.

National Grid is reporting less than 100 outages as of 7:25 p.m.

Meanwhile, Western Massachusetts Electric Co. (WMECO) is still reporting less than 600 outages.

Officials at WMECO said the remaining outages are in the Springfield area, and are expected to be restored Sunday.

NStar and Unitil are not reporting any outages.

On Friday, Gov. Deval Patrick ordered an inquiry into the utilities’ response to the storm.
