Wintry Weather Brings Outages To Western Maryland

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — A combination of snow and strong wind gusts has caused power outages throughout the day in western Maryland.

Potomac Edison’s websites show more than 1,200 customers in Garrett and Allegany counties are without power as of about 7 p.m. Saturday. That’s a higher total than was reported earlier in the day.

Garrett County commissioner James Raley said that even though there were blizzard-like conditions at time, the storm was pretty routine for the area and that most of the roads were passable by the morning. He says he’s not aware of any major problems caused by the storm.

State Police say there was a fatal car collision in Allegany County on Saturday morning at a time when the snow emergency plan was in effect.
