Earlier today, Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency provided an update on that big weather storm from the PEMA headquarters in Harrisburg.
“This has been a significant storm and I just want to make it clear that we’re not out of the woods just yet. It’s still snowing out here in Harrisburg. The bulk of the storm will be ending in the northeast part of the state sometime later this evening, but winds are going to increase, and also I think we have to concerned about the cycle of freeze and thawing. We still need to be careful. Blowing snow could make driving hazardous. If you don’t have to travel, don’t travel. That’s as simple as we can be and it’s really important. We all appreciate everybody who stayed off the highways, who didn’t have to go, because it really made the job of keeping those highways open for those who did have to travel. It made that job a lot easier,” Wolf said in his press conference.
