OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — Garrett County Sheriff Rob Corley says about 95 percent of state and county roads are open following snows from Superstorm Sandy.

Potomac Edison, meanwhile, says about 5,400 customers were still without power Sunday afternoon.

Corley and Maryland National Guard officers toured the area Saturday to view storm recovery efforts.

The Maryland Army National Guard is helping with stranded vehicles, leading search and rescue operations and coordinating recovery efforts.

The guard has brought in Humvee off-road vehicles and other equipment into the western Maryland county to help dig out from the more than 30 inches of snow that fell in many areas.
