Almost everyone was left without power Tuesday in Preston County.
Some places in the county already got three feet of snow, and they were supposed to get more Tuesday night. That's forced the closure of a lot of side roads.
Officials said the National Guard has also been there to help folks, and they also also set up three emergency shelters in the county.
Amanda Clemens lives in Masontown, and decided to stay at one of the shelters when she lost power.
"Crazy, disastrous," is how she described the situation outside her home. "Everything just came all at once. I don't think anyone was really prepared. We had a Reedsville police officer pick us up at our home and he took us to the Reedsville shelter, and then they took us here today (to the shelter in Masontown)."
There are three emergency shelters set up in Preston County.
They're located at:
Bruceton Volunteer Fire Department - Union Street, Bruceton Mills
Kingwood Civic Center - 311 Tunnelton Street, Kingwood
Masontown Volunteer Fire Department - Route 7, Masontown
They also have one warming shelter, and that's located at:
Rowlesburg Ambulance Service - 17 Chessie Lane, Rowlesburg
