HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The latest snowstorm left far fewer Pennsylvanians without electricity than last week's ice storm.
Gov. Tom Corbett said Thursday that about 1,600 customers were without power as of 4 p.m., down from a peak of 5,800 at noon, as crews worked to restore service.
At a late-afternoon briefing at the headquarters of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, Corbett thanked motorists for staying off the roads so crews could plow efficiently.
He says totals included 16 inches in Chester County, 15 in York County. 13 in Philadelphia and 11 in Dauphin County.
