ASSOCIATED PRESS: Winter made an early debut in northeastern Pennsylvania on Tuesday as a storm blanketed parts of the region with several inches of snow, closing schools and causing power outages and road closures. PPL Corp. said more than 25,000 customers lost power. Higher elevations of the Poconos received up to 8 inches of wet snow by Tuesday morning, causing downed trees and power lines, the National Weather Service said. Wind gusts of up to 45 mph were expected Tuesday afternoon. Valley regions of northeastern Pennsylvania were expected to get 1 to 4 inches. The storm caused numerous traffic accidents. A seven-mile stretch of Interstate 80 between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and state Route 115 was closed due to multiple tractor trailer crashes. Westbound lanes re-opened after more than an hour but eastbound lands remained shut down. Interstate 84 at the New York-Pennsylvania line also closed for a spell. The weather service issued winter storm warnings or advisories for Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Pike, Monroe, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties. MORE
