Hazardous conditions keep crews busy
Mon, 25 Nov 2013 00:47:15 GMT —
The Texas Department of Transportation is strongly recommending that everyone stay off the roads as they are still extremely hazardous.
TxDot reports there are no closures as of right now in the Amarillo or Lubbock area, but there are roads closed in the Midland and El Paso areas as this storm is gripping much of the southwest.
The Department of Public Safety reports they are working many small wrecks.
The Amarillo Police Department says there have been 81 reported car accidents since 5 p.m. Saturday until 3 p.m. Sunday. They are currently responding to more.
Black ice is present on many roadways, overpasses and ramps. According to TxDot, packed snow is also causing an issue. Crews have been working throughout the day to plow roadways.
