FACTBOX-Over 1.2 million still without power on U.S. East Coast from Isaias

    Aug 7 (Reuters) - More than 1.2 million homes and businesses from
Pennsylvania to Massachusetts were still without power early Friday after
Hurricane Isaias crashed up the U.S. East Coast earlier this week, according to
local electric companies.
    That is down from over 1.8 million early Thursday. In total, the storm
knocked out service to more than 4.3 million customers from North Carolina to
Quebec after crashing into the North Carolina coast Monday night. The storms
remnants were last seen in Quebec on Wednesday.
    Isaias was the earliest ninth storm of the Atlantic season. The U.S. National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on Thursday boosted its prediction
on the number of named tropical storms this year, saying there could be up to 16
more for a total of 25. The current record for named tropical storms in a season
is 27 in 2005, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.
