CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Utilities crews are slowly restoring electricity to thousands of customers in West Virginia but many areas remain without service.
More than 342,000 customers were without power Tuesday morning. That's down from more than 680,000 on Saturday, the day after violent storms swept across the state.
Highway crews continue to clear fallen trees and power lines from secondary roads. The West Virginia Department of Transportation says 20 roads were closed Tuesday morning, down from more than 70 on Monday.
The outages include 213,016 Appalachian Power customers and 128,095 customers of FirstEnergy Corp. subsidiaries MonPower and Potomac Edison.
More than 52,000 outages are in Kanawha County, the state's most populous.
