The freezing rain and ice has made the roads slippery for motorists. Joe Perry, Medina DPW superintendent, is urging motorists not to drive if they have that option the next few hours.

“We have 4 trucks out salting and are having a hard time keeping up with the ice,” Medina Mayor Mike Sidari posted on Facebook. “We are expected to receive up to a half inch of ice. Watch for low hanging tree limbs and wires.”

If there is a wire hanging or down on the ground, Sidari said people shouldn’t try to move it. They should call 911.

Orleans County is under a winter weather advisory until 1 a.m. tonight due to the freezing rain.
