South Shore: Some areas remain in the dark

National Grid reports Wednesday that more than 83,000 of its nearly 1.3 million customers don’t have electricity.

A majority of those outages are in the Attleboro and Scituate areas. The company says it is working to replace 360 poles and 80 miles of wire.

About 112,000 Massachusetts homes and businesses remain without power in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene.

NStar says about 29,000 of its customers are still off line, most of those outages are on the South Shore, Cape Cod, and the Metro West areas.

The utilities say despite crews working around the clock, some people may not get their electricity restored until the weekend, nearly a week after Irene hit. Both companies say their crews prioritize repairs that will bring power to the largest number of customers.
