PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - National Grid says power has been restored to all but about 40 customers who lost power as a windy winter storm grips Rhode Island.

The utility reports that as of 4 p.m. Tuesday, 37 customers are without power and nearly all of the outages are in the Providence area.

It restored power to 2,200 customers. Nearly all of those outages were in Warren.

There are a handful of outages scattered elsewhere in the state.

The National Weather Service says the state can expect about 2 feet of snow. Gov. Gina Raimondo has warned that it’s possible some residents could be without power for days.
