PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The number of customers without power in Pennsylvania has fallen to about 65,000 after peaking at 849,000 in the state 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 29,000 customers in hard-hit Chester County, or about 14 percent of customers who get their electricity from PECO, the dominant power utility in the state.

Montgomery County had about 14,000 customers without electricity, while Bucks County had nearly 12,000.

Maryland officials reported nearly 500 customers still without power as of 9:30 a.m., up from about 300 just a few hours earlier.

More than 1 million customers lost power at the storm's peak.
