BELINGTON The winter storm has wreaked havoc on many local roadways. Officials are urging people to stay off the roadways and to avoid non-emergency travel until conditions improve.
Law enforcement in the Belington and Junior areas have instructed Inter-Mountain carriers to cease delivery and stay off the roadways due to dangerous conditions. The Inter-Mountain has halted service to these areas until tomorrow.
In addition, Elkins City Clerk Sutton Stokes is reporting that roadways in Elkins are "dangerous and worsening steadily." He said dozens of accidents, many with injury, are being reported in the area. Because of the large volume of accidents, emergency responders must prioritize accidents with injury and may not be available to respond to non-injury accidents.
