Numerous Traffic Tieups, Power Outages Around Springfield From Major Winter Storm


A major winter storm that slammed into Central and Northern Illinois has made travel a nightmare in the Springfield area... but even those staying put might find themselves in the dark.

 

The snow and high winds caused numerous semis to jackknife on Interstates 55 and 72, bringing traffic to a virtual standstill at several points along the highway.

 

In addition, the combination of snow and high winds knocked out power to hundreds of people in and around Springfield.  And the winds will remain a problem throughout the night, which could hamper efforts to get the power back on.

 

Stay with 970 WMAY for updates on this significant storm.
