Ice Storm Hits Midwest, Northeast, Toronto, December 2013, Thousands of people faced the prospect of spending the holidays in the dark, after a huge ice storm knocked out power throughout the Midwest and New England.

Almost 400,000 homes and businesses in Michigan, upstate New York and northern New England were without electricity Monday morning after thick ice felled trees and brought down power lines, according to utilities companies.

While lights came back on in many homes in upstate New York and Vermont, power companies in Michigan and Maine reported larger numbers of outages as the sun set on Monday.

Brad Hoving, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids, Mich. – the state with a bulk of the remaining power outages — said many people may still be using candlelight until Thursday.
