Heavy snow, strong wind causing driving problems in Wood County
With several inches of snow already on the ground in Wood County, heavy snowfall and gusts of wind are posing more problems for drivers Tuesday morning.
Visibility on I-77 in Wood County was poor Tuesday morning. Snow blanketed the highway, making the lines on the road difficult to see. Strong wind picked up the snow and blew it around the road, also causing visibility issues.
Icy conditions also caused some issues Tuesday. 13 News crews saw several cars on the side of the road on 77N in Wood County, many of which seemed to have spun out due to ice on the roads. WVDOH signs flashing along I-77 were warning drivers to expect icy conditions and to reduce speed.
13 News crews saw several salt trucks treating the highways Tuesday morning.
In total, Wood County could see another 2-4 inches of snow Tuesday.
