Freezing Rain Warning Continues

Dec 30, 2019 at 11:50

Right now in Wawa, the freezing rain has transitioned to snow that is beginning to accumulate. Wawa-news has received reports that highway conditions are not good. It is snowing heavy in the Soo, and in White River and Chapleau as well.

The garbage collection that had been scheduled for today has been cancelled due to the inclement weather.

OPP are suggesting, “If you do not have to drive today, consider staying put. If you must drive today, give yourself extra time to reach your destination. Drive with extra caution and leave extra space between your vehicle and other vehicles on the roadway. Clear all the snow off from your vehicle (roof included) before driving.”
