PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The huge snowstorm has prompted transportation shutdowns or restrictions around Pennsylvania, with officials urging people stay off the roads if at all possible.

The storm prompted cancellation of all flights Saturday into and out of Philadelphia International Airport.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation issued vehicle and speed restrictions on some roadways, barring empty trucks and trailers pulled by vehicles in many areas and reducing speed limits on some highways. Lancaster and York officials imposed travel bans barring nonessential travel on city streets.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority earlier suspended service on regional rail lines, bus and trolley routes.

Governor Tom Wolf tells WPVI-TV that the danger will still not be over when the snow stops, because it will be very cold and windy “so there will be some drifting.”
