Superstorm Sandy has left more than 900,000 Pennsylvania homes without power, including 144 thousand in the midstate.  The heavy rain yesterday and last night hasn’t resulted in widespread flooding as feared.  Damage is still being assessed this morning but it doesn’t appear as though as many trees came down as anticipated either.  However, Sandy has definitely left her mark on Pennsylvania and its not over yet.

On today’s Radio Smart Talk, we’ll get an overview of the storm and what it left behind.  We’ll also hear the latest weather forecast to find out when the rain and winds will end and normal October weather returns.  One question many have is whether Sandy will bring any snow to Pennsylvania.  West Virginia is getting socked with over a foot of snow from the outer bands of Sandy.

Listen to an edited portion of the program, which opens with a live broadcast of a press conference held by Governor Corbett:
