At 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, there were 35 state roads closed across York County for downed trees, according to Mike Martin, the York County maintenance manager for PennDOT. Many of the trees knocked down utility wires, he said.

"And trees are still falling down," he said. "We'll open one or two roads, then we'll get a report that another tree has fallen down (and closed a new road). It looks like an all-night situation."

One of those trees fell on a PennDOT dump truck that was spreading de-icer on Interstate 83 near the Emigsville exit early Wednesday morning, according to Martin.

"It fell right on the roof," he said. "It took out the mirror and the side window ... and put a dent in the roof." The driver escaped injury.

"He was shook up a little," but ended up going back out in a different truck, Martin said.

In York City: Jim Gross, York City's public works director, said three city work crews and two privately contracted crews spent Wednesday trying to clean up the city.

"We had a lot of limbs down, and trees," he said. "There are some places where there are power lines (down) and we have to wait for Med-Ed to get there first."

The city's Springdale neighborhood -- which has many large, old trees -- was likely the hardest-hit area of the city, he said. Trees in the Avenues neighborhood also fared badly, he said.

"We made a lot of progress today," Gross said on Wednesday. "We're going to have more to do tomorrow -- and we haven't touched any of the parks yet."

Some parks, including Farquhar Park, were hard-hit by the ice storm, said Gross, who estimated city crews will need several weeks to clean up the parks.

He was more optimistic about the time frame for clearing sidewalks and streets of limbs and branches.

"Probably by the end of the day (Thursday) or Friday, we'll have most of this cleaned up and we'll be in good shape," Gross said. "The parks can wait."
