Power outages from ice storm linger in northern NY

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (AP) Several thousand utility customers in northern New York may have to do without holiday lights on the night before Christmas thanks to last weekend's ice storm.

National Grid reports more than 6,200 homes and businesses remain without power on Christmas Eve morning. About 4,000 of the outages are in Jefferson County, with another 1,400 reported in neighboring St. Lawrence County.

The utility says most customers should have their power restored by late Christmas Eve, but some may not get the electricity back on until Christmas afternoon.

The weekend storm produced more than an inch of ice in parts of western and northern New York, bringing tree limbs down onto power lines. About 50,000 utility customers across the upstate region lost power.
