Ice storm will make for hazardous driving
An ice storm warning is in effect for Orleans County today until about noon on Sunday, the National Weather Service has advised.
Orleans, Genesee, Niagara, Monroe and northern Erie are all included in the warning. Those areas could get a half inch to an inch of ice, making driving dangerous. The buildup of ice may bring down tree limbs and knock out power.
“Roads will become very slick in some locations tonight, especially on bridges,” the NWS advised.
The Weather Service recommended postponing any travel.
“If you lose power and plan on running a generator, make sure that the generator is located outdoors and is properly ventilated,” NWS said.
Orleans also remains under a flood warning until 9 p.m. today.
