PHILADELPHIA — Five days after an ice storm knocked down trees and snapped power lines, and as another winter storm moved through the region, about 21,000 utility customers in eastern Pennsylvania remain in the dark.

The National Weather Service says between 1 and 3 inches of snow blanketed the area Sunday, the latest in a snow- and ice-filled winter.

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 early Monday include nearly 10,500 customers in hard-hit Chester County.

Montgomery County had about 5,600 customers without electricity, while Bucks County had about 3,200.
