East Coast digging out from second storm


PHILADELPHIA (WKOW) -- Federal offices, city agencies and schools remain closed to deal with the tail end of a second major storm on the East Coast.

In Washington, D.C., the federal government plans to be closed for a fourth straight day. The nation's capitol has joined Philadelphia and Baltimore in racking up the snowiest winter in history.

Wednesday, emergency officials in Pennsylvania reported 200 vehicles stranded along Interstate 78, waiting as long as midnight for plows to clear the path.

Electric crews in New Jersey are hustling to restore power to the 80,000 homes and businesses that have been without for much of this storm.
