HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) --

The number of homes and businesses without power on the East Coast has grown to 2.7 million as an unusually early snowstorm passes over New England.

Millions of customers there reported power losses early Sunday,
including more than 650,000 in Massachusetts. In New Hampshire,
200,000 are without electricity.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says more than 750,000 customers are without power. That breaks a record set when the
remnants of Hurricane Irene hit the state in August. Malloy says people could be without electricity for as long as a week.

More than 617,000 people are without power in New Jersey. Utilities in Pennsylvania are saying more than 423,000 are without power, and Western Maryland had more than 29,000 outages.

In the New York City area, more than 70,000 had lost power.
