A look at the storm’s impact on Pennsylvania
Question of the Day
A look at the impact of the latest winter storm on Pennsylvania.
OUTAGES: More than 750,000 electric customers of PECO and PPL had lost power service Wednesday, largely blamed on downed trees under the weight of snow and ice. Most affected customers were in Chester, Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware and Lancaster counties.
TRAVEL CONDITIONS: The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission reported downed trees on the main turnpike and Northeast Extension were blocking lanes and advised caution. The turnpike had reduced speed limits to 45 mph and banned empty tractor-trailers but later lifted it.
Likewise, state highway officials lifted the 45 mph limit on many roads but left them in place on Interstates 78, 80 and 380.
Amtrak announced suspension of Philadelphia to Harrisburg service and SEPTA reported numerous delays and cancellations.
CLOSURES: Many school districts across Pennsylvania were closed or announced delays. Some county governments and courthouses were closed.
