PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) -- The Blizzard of 2013 knocked out power to tens of thousands of Southern New Englanders, and National Grid says they hope to have most, if not all, back online by Sunday night.
The snowstorm knocked out power to almost 190,000 customers this weekend, far more than Superstorm Sandy, which peaked at about 122,000. As of 5:30 a.m. Monday, just over 20,000 in the area remain in the dark.
Fred Kuebler of National Grid said that despite the frigid temperatures, crews worked through Saturday night into Sunday to put those without power back online.
"We are aiming, and things are looking good for us to get almost everybody back on by midnight tonight," Kuebler said Sunday morning.
