OPP warn motorists to stay off roads

Ontario Provincial Police are warning motorists to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary due to a savage storm hitting our area.

“We would prefer the highways to be empty and are encouraging all non-essential travel to be postponed,” said OPP sgt. Kerry Schmidt in an update Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, a main concern is Monday when “the big melt” will be underway, Farnell said. With temperatures getting warmer, the meteorologist said he is concerned about river flooding, as well as street flooding with sewers and drains clogged with ice and snow.
