41 percent of Montco still without power

Thursday dawned in Montgomery County with 126,000 households -- about 41 percent of all Peco customers -- still lacking power.  Peco says most should be back online by Friday evening, but some might have to suffer through Sunday. 

Areas still deeply affected include Abington, Hatboro-Horsham, L. Gwynedd, Springfield, U. Dublin, U. Moreland, and Whitpain.

Service on SEPTA's Paoli-Thorndale line is still suspended.  Many other lines are running 30 minutes late.

County courthouse and other buildings are closed.  Most school districts are closed, although a few have scheduled late openings.  Montgomery County Community College is opening at noon.

Here's a roundup of everything you need to know as you start your morning: More than 400,000 Peco customers without power.
