RALEIGH, NC (AP) -

More than 360,000 customers remain without power as the Piedmont of North Carolina thaws out from a late winter storm.

Duke Energy reported 282,000 of its customers were without power Saturday after snow, sleet and up to a half-inch of ice fell in the Piedmont over the past two days. The utility reports over three-quarters of the people it serves in Alamance, Davidson and Randolph counties don't have electricity.

North Carolina's energy cooperatives reported more than 62,000 outages and EnergyUnited reported about 17,000 of its customers didn't have electricity.
