Hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians remained without power Thursday, a day after a snow-and-ice storm brought power outages to more than 750,000 electric customers. The storm, which dumped more than a foot of snow across parts of the Midwest and East on Tuesday and Wednesday, saved the bulk of its iciest wrath for Pennsylvania, where tree limbs heavy with ice crashed down on power lines across the eastern and central parts of the state. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett said Wednesday, warning that an overnight refreeze could cause more problems on the roads Thursday. AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Pydynowski had little good news for the area, saying another storm system could sweep across the region Saturday and Sunday.
