Thousands of residents in the Northeast may face another week without power after a snowstorm swept the region last week.

The storm, barreled through several states including Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Jersey. 60 mph winds knocked uprooted trees into power lines, according to a New York Times report.

Connecticut Light & Power said it will get close to its goal to restore 99 percent of its customer power Sunday, according to a CBS News report.

Many, who have been without power for eight days, are staying at friend's homes, shopping malls and movie theaters, according to a Star Tribune report.

Power is expected to be restored by Sunday night, according to the CBS News report.
