Parts of W.Va. Hit with Foot of Snow


A winter storm has left more than a foot of snow in parts of West Virginia on one of the busiest travel days of the year.
Eastern West Virginia and the Eastern Panhandle are the hardest hit areas. The National Weather Service says 14 inches of snow was reported Wednesday morning in Frenchburg and in Paw Paw. Augusta received a foot of snow.

Online utility figures show the storm knocked out power to about 13,300 Mon Power and Potomac Edison customers in the region.
About 2,900 Appalachian Power customers in southeastern West Virginia also are without electricity.
Winter storm warnings remain in effect for eastern counties and the panhandle until 6 p.m. Wednesday. A storm warning for western Greenbrier County is in effect until midnight Wednesday.
