Thousands still in the dark in Pennsylvania after storm
HARRISBURG -- The number of customers without power in Pennsylvania has fallen to about 65,000 after peaking at 849,000 following a midweek snow and ice storm.
Utility crews have been gradually restoring power since the Wednesday storm knocked down trees and snapped power lines primarily in the Philadelphia area.
The latest outages Sunday morning include more than 31,000 customers in hard-hit Chester County, or about 15 percent of customers who get their electricity from PECO, the dominant power utility in the state.
Montgomery County had nearly 13,000 customers without electricity, while Bucks County had about 12,000.
Maryland officials reported 300 customers still without power.
More than 1 million customers lost power at the storm's peak.
