WASHINGTON (AP) - Mid-Atlantic power companies are preparing for another round of extended outages from a storm threatening to bring up to 14 inches of snow.

Snow started falling in Washington about 7 p.m. and just before 8 p.m. in Baltimore Wednesday.

School districts through the region announced they would be closed on Thursday. State offices in Maryland will be closed.

The National Weather Service says some of the heaviest accumulation will be in Maryland’s Frederick and Carroll counties.

Potomac Edison says snow isn’t as damaging as ice, but trees and branches damaged last week could be brought down by snow.

D.C. officials declared a snow emergency at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, meaning vehicles parked on emergency routes will be towed.

In Maryland, officials have identified areas along interstate highways for emergency truck parking.
