MONTPELIER, Vt. — More than 200,000 customers across the Northeast are still without power after gusty storms that started on Halloween toppled trees and power lines and caused flooding.

New York and Maine each had more than 70,000 still without service Saturday morning. Vermont had more than 28,000 without power.

In some areas, it could be days before the power is back on.

The storms killed at least two people. A man in Tennessee who was injured when a tree fell on his van later died, and a Glenville, New York, man died after he got out of his car on a flooded road and was swept away.
