Power outages plagued the Northern Tier while a spattering of homes in Lycoming County were affected.
About 2,200 people in the Northern Tier were without power Friday morning, said Jeff Fetzer, chief communication officer with Tri-County Rural Electric Co.
Potter County saw the most power outages as of 11 a.m. Friday, he said.
"Our Germania district has about 600 out, and an additional 250 in northern Clinton," he added. "In Coudersport we have about 300 out, 350 in Coneville, and 380 in Austin."
"We had about 56 outages in Bentley Creek, which is in Bradford County," Fetzer said, adding Claverack, which serves almost over to Route 220, reported 38 outages in the Tunkhannock area. In Towanda there were no power outages reported."
In Tioga County, there were 33 outages in the Westfield service district, some in the Nelson area, in Liberty, about 7 and about 6 in the Mainesburg area, Fetzer said.
In the Wellsboro there were fewer than 200 people without power, he added.
There were scattered power outages throughout PPL Energy Services coverage areas near Williamsport and throughout Lycoming County.
Slightly more than 200 customers were out of power until around 8 p.m. Friday, when PPL crews were able to make repairs. The officials number of outages in the county was 202, according to Donald Stringfellow, a PPL spokesman.
Townships affected included Armstrong, Bastress, Cummings, Limestone, Porter, Washington and Watson.
The causes were primarily due to the surprisingly heavy and wet snow that fell on trees that still had leaves on them, he said. Ice, leaves, and downed trees have caused the problem. Oftentimes, the limbs simply broke and fell down onto the electrical wires, which in turn could not bear the brunt in many cases, Stringfellow noted.
It is often a good idea for homeowners and business owners to try to eliminate the problem of downed wires by ice and snow on trees by having a qualified contractor remove them. Stringfellow emphasized the word "qualified" because these are highly charged power lines.
Rick Mason, a spokesman for the state Department of Transportation District 3 in Montoursville said amazingly there was up to 6 inches of snow reported on portions of Jacks Hollow Road, south of DuBoistown on Bald Eagle Mountain.
The snow caused many trees to fall onto the road and crews spent several hours in clean up mode before they were able to reopen the road to traffic.
Motorists had been advised to avoid Jacks Hollow Road until the traffic advisory was lifted.
Multiple trees came down on the road, creating potentially hazardous driving conditions.
PennDOT had crews on the scene since Thursday. Crews will head to wherever they are needed depending on the conditions. Another winter storm warning remained in effect until 8 a.m. today.
