It's a wild, windy Thursday across much of the eastern U.S, with gusts topping 60 mph in places from the Great Lakes to the East Coast.
About 250,000 customers are without power in Pennsylvania, and 140,000 more in Ohio. There are also about 109,000 outages in West Virginia, more than 35,000 in New Jersey and 14,900 in Michigan.
Utilities in Ohio and West Virginia say electricity wouldn't be restored to some residents until the weekend or later.
At least five deaths are blamed on the wind. A New York construction worker was crushed when a building collapsed. A New Jersey woman was killed when a tree crashed through her car's windshield.
In Kentucky, devastated by a crippling ice storm two week ago, the wind caused at least 150,000 outages. About 55,000 customers remained without power Thursday afternoon.
