(Harrisburg) -- Gov. Tom Wolf is sending about 90 National Guard troops to address storm damage in northeastern Pennsylvania, where high winds and snow have cut power, downed trees and closed roadways.

Wolf's office says the guardsmen will be headed primarily to Pike and Monroe counties in the Poconos, where some of the deepest snow totals have been recorded.

The Pocono Record says 20 inches of snow dropped on Tobyhanna.
