BOSTON (AP) - Major utilities in Massachusetts are reporting about 13,000 power outages at the height of the blizzard, including the Pilgrim Nuclear Station in Plymouth.

The state Emergency Management Agency says the plant’s emergency diesel generators are supplying power to the safety systems and there is no emergency or danger.

National Grid reports early Tuesday that about 6,500 customers are without power, with Nantucket the hardest hit.

NStar is reporting more than 6,300 customers in the dark, mostly in coastal communities that are being affected by high winds.

Both utilities have more than 1 million customers.

Western Mass. Electric Co. and Unitil are not reporting any outages.

The National Weather Service says parts of Massachusetts could get about two feet of snow.
