CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A late winter storm has closed schools in more than half of West Virginia's counties and left about 20,000 customers without power.
Warnings for heavy, wet snow remain in effect for eastern and north-central West Virginia and the Northern Panhandle.
The National Weather Service says eastern counties could see more than a foot of snow in higher elevations. Up to 8 inches of snow is expected in the Northern Panhandle.
The state Supreme Court announced that courts in Hampshire, Hardy and Pendleton counties are closed Wednesday. Shepherd University canceled classes.
FirstEnergy reports more than 18,400 outages, including nearly 3,000 in Berkeley County. More than 1,500 Appalachian Power customers also are without electricity, and American Electric Power had a few hundred outages in its Wheeling service area.
