Both outages are in Manchester Township and both are located along the Susquehanna Trail, according to Met-Ed spokesman Scott Surgeoner.

Approximately 526 customers are without power on the Susquehanna Trail at Village Way, and another outage further north on the Susquehanna Trail near Sinking Springs Elementary School is affecting 277 customers, according to Surgeoner. Central York School District, along with every school district in York County, is closed.

Crews have been dispatched to both locations and Surgeoner said it is unknown if the outages are due to the large snow system currently making its way through the county.

As of 10:30 a.m., both outages have an estimated resolution time of 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Met-Ed power outage website.
