(Reuters) - Over 500,000 homes and businesses were without power in the eastern half of the United States and Texas on Saturday as winter storms battered much of the country, according to data from .

U.S. utilities were working to restore power after the storms moved on from their service territories but some were still dealing with high winds.

The greatest numbers of outages were in the New England region, with 156,289 customers without power in Maine, followed by New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

During the Christmas weekend, storms are expected to bring blizzard conditions to the Great Lakes region, heavy rains followed by a flash freeze on the East Coast and wind gusts of 60 miles per hour (100 kph) and bitter cold as far south as the U.S.-Mexico border.

Here are the major outages by state:

Gee an article that didn't blame the blackout on Trump. Amazing. Of course if he was still president he would be getting blamed by the press.

How is that any different than any other year? Every winter that's reported like a it's brand new phenomenon. But, it's not new, because it happens every year. If there were reporters in the neanderthal days, they'd run a major news scare everytime some wind or rain took out a fire.
