Oct 29 (Reuters) - Almost 2.3 million homes and businesses were without power on Thursday from Louisiana to Virginia after Hurricane Zeta slammed into the Gulf Coast late Wednesday and moved northeast across the U.S. Southeast, according to local utilities. That is down from almost 3.0 million total customers affected by Zeta. As the storm moved northeast, utilities along the Gulf Coast were restoring power, while there were new outages in Virginia. Southern Co's Georgia Power unit, the utility with the most affected customers, has already restored service to over 220,000 customers. Separately, there were still about 340,000 customers still without power in Oklahoma and Texas following ice storms there earlier in the week. The remnants of Zeta were currently over Virginia.
