FACTBOX-U.S. East Coast snowstorm knocks out power to 80,000 customers

    Jan 4 (Reuters) - U.S. utilities along the East Coast said almost 80,000 homes and
businesses were without power midday on Thursday from the massive snow and ice storm battering
Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states.
    That is down from the 108,000 outages the storm has caused as utilities in the Southeast
have restored some service after the storm moved north overnight.
    Most of the current outages are in Virginia, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Georgia and New
York.
    The giant storm is currently located over coastal parts of New England, New York, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, and utilities in those states have warned
customers to expect outages.
    
    The following lists major outages according to the utilities' websites, including some
outages in Canada:
