After Ida hits Massachusetts, thousands are left without power

Northeast flash flood videos capture dangerous Ida remnants

NYC videos show deadly results of Hurricane Ida as tornado and flash flood warnings are issued across NY, PA, and NJ

Power to much of Massachusetts was restored on Thursday morning after the remnants of Hurricane Ida ripped through the region. 

According to outage tracker PowerOutage.US, 1,577 customers were reported without power shortly before noon on the East Coast. 

However, to the south, tens of thousands were powerless in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland after Ida brought life-threatening flooding, record rainfall and a few tornadoes to the region on Wednesday. 

In an update later in the morning, NBC Boston reported that about 20,000 residents across New England were dealing with outages, with the majority in Connecticut. 

At 12:35 p.m. ET, PowerOutage.US showed Connecticut with 13,613 customers out.

Ida, which forced New Jersey and New York to declare states of emergency on Wednesday night and killed at least 23 people, was headed toward Cape Cod late Thursday morning. 

Hurricane Ida initially struck Louisiana on Sunday as the fifth-strongest storm ever to hit the continental U.S., leaving more than 1 million people there without power.

Thousands of workers have been deployed in the effort to restore power in the state and Mississippi and two 19-year-old Alabama Power workers were reportedly fatally electrocuted on Tuesday in Jefferson County, according to WVTM.
