There were at least three car accidents today with one on Telegraph Road in Ridgeway, an accident on Oak Orchard Ridge Road in Shelby and a 2-car accident on Ridge Road in Gaines.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning from 6 p.m. today until noon on Friday for Orleans, Niagara and Monroe counties. A wind chill watch also has been issued from Saturday night through Monday morning.

The wind chill values could fall as low as -25 tonight, the National Weather Service said. On Saturday night through Monday the wind chill could plummet to 30 below.
