Binghamton Storm: Snow and Ice Close Roads, Schools and Affect Power Lines

Posted: Updated:

Speed advisories remain in effect for major roadways in the Southern tier including I-88, I-86 to the PA line and Route 17 to I-84. A travel advisory remains in effect for Tioga County. 

A winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service in Binghamton remains in effect until midnight. By late Sunday afternoon, most area school districts canceled classes for Monday, when students were set to return from Thanksgiving break.

Binghamton University and SUNY Broome also canceled classes. 

 In the Town of Vestal along Rt. 26 near the PA border, about 185 NYSEG customers lost power at 7:10 a.m. A NYSEG spokesperson said wet snow caused pine trees to snap on top of power lines. Power was expected to be restored by late Monday afternoon. 

NYSEG crews have been busy responding to numerous reports of downed trees and lines throughout Broome and Tioga counties, which have been causing outages throughout the day. 

National Weather Service employees and spotters reported total storm snowfall that ranged from 9 in. on Tracy Creek Road in Vestal, 10 in. on Campville Road in Tioga County and 7.5 in. in Endwell.
