RALEIGH, NC (AP) -

State officials say almost 30,000 utility customers remain without electricity in North Carolina after a storm dumped snow, sleet and ice across most of the state.

Spokeswoman Crystal Feldman of the state emergency operations center said that was the number of customers without power as of Friday afternoon. That's down from 48,000 earlier in the day and 133,000 Thursday afternoon.

Outages had been most severe in the eastern part of the state, which got mostly ice and not snow.
