The Commonwealth Emergency Operations Center (CEOC) activated Sunday at 3 pm at Level III to monitor the winter storm crossing the Commonwealth today through tomorrow afternoon. 

Level III staffing includes designated state and private sector partners and other officials.

National Weather Service officials have predicted significant accumulations of freezing rain, ice, sleet and snow across the Commonwealth. 

Coupled with strong winds and gusts up to 20-30 mph, downed power lines and trees are expected along with widespread power outages. 

If you lose power, do not use unapproved alternate heating sources inside the home.

Officials strongly encourage people to watch the weather carefully and if you do not have to travel, stay home. 

If you must get out in the winter storm, ensure your vehicle is full of gas and packed with an emergency kit including extra blankets and nonperishable food items.
