PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Repair crews are making steady progress on restoring power to customers left without electricity after powerful thunderstorms moved across Pennsylvania.

PECO is reporting that around 700 customers remain without power in Philadelphia and its suburbs.

Here are the numbers as of 10 p.m. Saturday:

Chester County: 400 outages

Montgomery County: 20 outages

Delaware County: 100 outages

Philadelphia: 200 outages

At the storm’s peak, nearly 171,000 utility customers had no power throughout Pennsylvania.

Thursday’s stormy weather forced the postponement of several fireworks displays (See Related Story).
PECO says customers can expect all power to be restored by Saturday night.
