HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Utility crews in Pennsylvania are still trying to restore power to more than 320,000 customers who remain without power two days after an ice storm downed trees and power lines.
More than 286,000 customers were out Friday morning in the five-county Philadelphia area. Many schools closed for a third straight day.
Utilities say more than 30,000 customers were also without power in York County in central Pennsylvania. In Maryland, service was been restored to all but about 30,000 homes and businesses.
Officials have said they hope to have most of them back online by the end of the day Friday, but in some cases it may take much of the weekend.
Amtrak, meanwhile, says full service between Philadelphia and Harrisburg is being restored today after tracks have been cleared of fallen trees and debris.
