BOSTON (CBS) — About 3,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity late Tuesday night, four days after a nor’easter slammed Massachusetts.

The number had been slowly dropping from about the 22,000 outages that morning.

The hardest hit towns, according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), are Pembroke, Norwell, Halifax, and Rochester. About 25% of those towns do not have power as of 11:45 a.m.

Crews have been working to restore power across the state.

Power outages peaked at just over 451,000 around 11:30 p.m. on Friday night.
