SJC DEM Media Update: Winter Weather Continues

From San Juan County Dept. of Emergency Management…
 
As of 7am on Monday, County Road Crews are reporting the heaviest overnight snow on Orcas and the north and west sides of San Juan Island, with some locations receiving up to 8 inches of snow since late Sunday.
 
According to County Public Works Director Russ Harvey, “Road conditions are difficult in places with blowing snow and accumulations. Our crews are working hard, but some locations are filling back in about as quickly as we can plow them
 
Early reports from road crews are of less snow on Lopez Island, and around Friday Harbor. “Drivers should use common sense and not push their comfort levels if conditions appear unsafe” says Harvey.
 
There’s more snow in the forecast for late Monday into Tuesday, so islanders should be prepared for the wintry conditions to continue.
