VIDEO: Delmarva deals with thousands of outages

Power outages kept Delmarva Power crews busy on Wednesday.

Freezing rain that fell overnight took down trees and power lines.

Just under 1,000 customers still don't have power in northern New Castle County.

Earlier yesterday that figure had been near 9,000 customers but dropped to 5,400 by 5 p.m.
