Power Out on Cape Cod After Noel's Winds

CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) -- Crews worked through the night to restore power on Cape Cod, where thousands were left in the dark by what had been Hurricane Noel.

The utility NStar says fewer than 5,000 residents were without power as of 6 a.m. and it's "confident" all will be back on line by the end of the day.

About 50,000 NStar customers lost service at the height of the storm Saturday, as the region was lashed by heavy rain and wind gusts higher than 60 miles per hour.

Chatham Harbor Master Stuart Smith tells The Cape Cod Times one home was destroyed by the wind and waves and a second was knocked from its foundation.
