|  From MSNBC:
| 
|  Other affected cities included Buffalo, Albany and Syracuse, N.Y.;
|  Hartford, Conn.; Lansing and many other smaller cities in Michigan;
Akron
|  and Toledo, Ohio; and Ottawa and Montreal in Ontario.
| 
|  Washington and the federal government were not affected Neither were
much
|  of New England - including all of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New
|  Hampshire, southern Vermont and eastern Connecticut - and other areas
of
|  Canada, including Quebec City.

Correction to the above snippet.  Montreal & Quebec City (Province of
Quebec; not Ontario as stated above) are on a separate power grid and
thus not affected by this outage.
