The early nor'easter had utility companies struggling to restore electricity to more than 3 million homes and businesses. By early today, the number of customers without power was still above 2 million but falling. But officials in some states warned it could be days or even a week before residents have power again, even though crews have been brought in from as far away as Michigan and Canada.
