PennDOT reported Rohrsburg Road and other local roads were closed. Most have since reopened. The Millville School District was delayed due to the power outages. The rest areas along I-80 in Columbia County were closed and are now open. Columbia/Montour 9-1-1 reported the communities most impacted were in Millville and Berwick regions.
