PHILADELPHIA — Repair crews are making steady progress on restoring power to customers left without electricity as powerful thunderstorms moved across Pennsylvania.

PECO reported on Friday evening that more than 11,000 customers remain without power in Philadelphia and suburbs, almost half in Chester County.

Other providers estimated about 1,600 combined customers in the dark.

At the storm's peak, nearly 171,000 utility customers had no power.
