Residents are still digging out after the storm and emergency crews were kept busy throughout the region as greasy roads caused havoc in the Lakeland area.

“Gusting winds reaching a 100 km/hr have been reported in the region,” County of Vermilion River Fire Chief Kirk Hughes told Lakeland Connect. “Blowing and drifting snow has reduced visibility on Highway #16 and subsidiary Highways around the County.”

Fire Chief Hughes says public works and road crews are out in force.

“Protective Services members have been out patrolling back roads and highways looking for stranded motorist,” Hughes said. “If you don’t need to be out – stay home.”
