BOSTON (AP) — The state’s electric utilities say they are making progress but more than 220,000 homes and businesses remain without power after last weekend’s nor’easter.

National Grid reports early Wednesday that more than 136,000 of its customers are still in the dark. Chelmsford, Westford, Worcester and Northbridge are among the communities with the highest percentage of outages.

Western Massachusetts Electric Co. is reporting that more than 76,000 of its customers are without electricity, with Agawam, Longmeadow and Ludlow among the hardest hit.

NStar says just 8,200 of its customers don’t have power.

At the height of the weekend storm that dropped more than two feet of snow on some parts of the state, more than 670,000 customers were without power.
