Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Thousands of customers have had their power restored in Delaware and eastern Maryland after high winds from a winter storm knocked down trees and power lines.
 
The Delaware Electric Cooperative, which serves mainly rural areas in central and southern Delaware, reports Thursday that power was restored to nearly every customer by Thursday morning. The utility had about 4,900 customers without power early Wednesday evening.
 
Delmarva Power reports about 478 customers were still affected with outages on Thursday morning. That's down from about 1,100 customers who were in the dark Wednesday evening. Most of the remaining outages are in Sussex County.
 
Delmarva Power has some outages on Maryland's Eastern Shore, including 126 customers affected in Somerset County.
