Nighttime travel restrictions are scheduled this week along Interstate 95 for construction at the Cottman Avenue (Route 73) Interchange, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced. Lane restrictions also will be in effect on Aramingo Avenue at the Girard Avenue Interchange.

Tennessee Dealing With Significant January Winter Storm

Forecasters expect a significant winter storm to sweep across Tennessee this weekend that could cause power outages, traffic delays and numerous safety risks.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency officials have declared a state of emergency ahead of a major winter weather system that is moving into the state.

Freezing rain, sleet, snow and high winds will create blizzard-like conditions in some areas of the state. Conditions may lead to stranded motorists, power outages and people in need of shelter.

The eastern portion of Tennessee will likely see freezing rain, with snowfall moving into the area on Friday evening. On Friday night, the northern portion of Tennessee will see snowfall, while the Chattanooga area is likely to see rain.

Kentucky Bracing for Major Winter Storm

Kentucky Bracing for Major Winter Storm

Kentucky Emergency Management (KYEM) is bracing for a major winter storm, which is approaching the Commonwealth. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Kentucky as the weather event approaches the Commonwealth.

“Over the next 48 hours, a major winter storm is expected to impact many regions of Kentucky— potentially causing ice-related damage, service interruption and impassable roadways,” said Governor Bevin. “Our agencies are monitoring the conditions and coordinating communications with local officials and emergency personnel in preparation. Safety is our first priority; so it is very important to restrict travel to a minimum.”

Snow amounts have been forecast up to 18 plus inches east of Interstate 65 with six inches along the Ohio River corridor, to up to 14 inches in the central Bluegrass Region. Ice will be a concern in the southern regions of central Kentucky, which may cause power outages.

Officials warn this storm could disrupt services so citizens should be prepared! The best advice is to just stay home and avoid travel, but if you must travel allow extra time, take it slow and allow plenty of space between vehicles.

KYEM officials encourage everyone to remain alert and continue to monitor their local broadcasting stations and NOAA weather alert radios and to check on neighbors, the elderly and those with special needs.

Virginia Declares State of Emergency in Response to the Forcasted Winter Storm

Virginia Declares State of Emergency in Response to the Forcasted Winter Storm

Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency, an action that authorizes state agencies to assist local governments in responding to a major winter storm that is expected to impact the Commonwealth through Sunday.

In declaring a state of emergency, the governor authorizes state agencies to identify and position resources for quick response anywhere they are needed in Virginia. This action does not apply to individuals or private businesses.

Governor McAuliffe urges Virginians to prepare for this major winter storm, which could dump up to two feet of snow in central and northern regions. Wind gusts of up to 50 mph, sleet and freezing rain could result in downed trees, power outages and blocked roads.

“Keeping Virginians safe in the event of severe weather is our top concern – that is why Virginia began preparing for severe winter weather yesterday by ordering more than 500 vehicles out to pretreat roads in Northern Virginia,” said Governor McAuliffe. “All Virginians should take the threat of this storm seriously and take necessary precautions now to ensure they are prepared for travel disruptions and possible power outages during a cold weather period.”

“VDOT is prepared with crews, equipment and materials to treat roads in advance of the storm and will work throughout the storm to plow roads,” said Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne. “Driving conditions during the storm are expected to be hazardous and motorists are urged to stay off the roads until the storm passes.”
