CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The number of New Hampshire homes and businesses still without power from the October snowstorm is down to about 86,000.

Most of those customers receive electricity from the state’s largest utility, Public Service of New Hampshire.

PSNH says almost all of the affected customers are in the southern part of the state, where wet, heavy snow last weekend brought down many trees, limbs and branches.

The outage count is down from a peak of 315,000 during the height of the storm. Utilities continue to say it will likely be several more days before restoration is complete.
