Road Crews Preparing For Winter Storm
CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – Snow started falling early Tuesday morning Maybe a little and it was a little unexpected and ahead of the bigger swath to follow today.
About two inches of snow fell in the Cranberry Township area.
PennDOT District 10 in Butler County got through the overnight hours and hit the roads with just enough salt.
However, they know this wasn’t the end. Some even comparing this forecast to that of initial predictions before “Snowmaggedon” in 2010.
“It’s coming out of the Gulf and we don’t know how much moisture we’re going get, so yeah it’s a possibility. Like I said, we’re as ready as we can be,” a PennDOT official; said.
Road crews can only take so much too.
“When we’re getting above an inch an hour, it’s really hard for us to stay ahead of it,” the PennDOT official said.
The road crew’s job will be made even harder with the amount of people traveling for Thanksgiving.
“Bad timing because it’s Thanksgiving and people want to travel,” the PennDOT official said. “There are emergency kits that you should be looking at to keep with you just in case.”
