DETROIT (AP) - Travel is difficult across much of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula due to a winter storm.
Traffic was light on many roadways, however, since many schools were closed along with some government offices. AAA Michigan says its total service calls through the end of the day Sunday were up by 36 percent versus a similar 12-hour period.
St. Clair County Sheriff Lt. Matt Paulus tells the Times Herald of Port Huron many secondary roads in the county are nearly impassable.
The Monroe News reports a Monroe County Road Commission plow truck overturned Sunday evening after getting too close to a ditch. The driver wasn’t injured.
People are being urged to stay off the roads in many places, if possible. Flight delays and cancelations have been reported in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Flint.
