Freezing rain hits SD&G

CORNWALL – A thin blanket of freezing rain has coated various highways and sidewalks around SD&G.

A freezing rain warning is in effect and will likely be in place for the first half of the day before it warms up and changes to rain this afternoon.

Cornwall firefighters had already responded to a vehicle off the road on Highway 401 around 8 a.m. SD&G paramedics and a tow truck were also on scene.

School buses didn’t have to worry about hitting the road today as students are off until Monday, Jan. 9, 2017.
