HARRISBURG, Pa. - Gov. Tom Wolf said more than 450 Pennsylvania National Guard soldiers remain on standby or are staged for possible missions throughout the night during the winter storm.
Wolf said Wednesday afternoon that snow is expected to continue through the night and into early Thursday morning. He said residents - especially those in the southern and eastern portions of the commonwealth - should continue to avoid unnecessary travel.
"We want to ensure PennDOT and municipal road crews are able to do their jobs to clear roadways safely and without delays," Wolf said.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike and PennDOT have lifted some restrictions on the turnpike and highways, but have left others in place.
"Just be safe," Wolf said. "This is a big snowstorm and we have to make sure we do everything we can to be safe. If you don't have to go out, don't."
