PHILADELPHIA (AP) — About 45,000 utility customers in Pennsylvania remain in the dark four days after an ice storm knocked down trees and snapped power lines.

The number of customers without power has dropped from a peak of about 850,000 after Wednesday's storm. Most of the outages are in the Philadelphia area.

The latest outage totals Sunday afternoon include more than 21,000 customers in hard-hit Chester County.

Montgomery County had about 12,000 customers without electricity, while Bucks County had about 10,000.

Maryland also got hit hard by the ice storm. Emergency management officials reported hundreds of customers still remained without power there Sunday.
