ROMNEY – The West Virginia Division of Highways said this morning (10:30 a.m). that primary roads in Hampshire County are slippery and chains should be used.
Julie Green, office assistant in the DOH Romney office, said the crews are plowing primary roads and will continue working on those roads until the snow stops.
“When the snow stops we’ll start on the secondary, back roads,” said Green.
Green said according to the weather reports the DOH depends upon, “It looks like its’ going to continue snowing through the afternoon. The weather reports are not giving a definitive time when it will stop.”
Green said 911 has reported numerous accidents.
“There have also been reports of trees down. There are no road closings at this time. But remember the back roads have not been plowed,” said Green.
The Hampshire Review will continue reporting road conditions as the information becomes available.
