Icy conditions prompt rash of cancellations

December 5, 2013

A storm system carrying freezing rain began moving through the Crossroads area today, turning roads dangerously slick and forcing the cancellation of several events.

Up to a half-inch of freezing rain is forecast to coat area roads today as a result of the storm, which is expected to keep temperatures well below the freezing mark through most the weekend.

The freezing rain has already made Interstate 20 next to impassable — law enforcement and emergency medical personnel were working several accidents in both Howard and Martin counties this morning — and officials were urging motorists to stay off the roads if possible and use extreme caution if they must travel.

Among the events which have been cancelled because of the weather is Howard College’s Luminaria, which had been scheduled for 5:30 p.m. today. Also, all Big Spring, Coahoma and Forsan high school sporting events scheduled for tonight have been cancelled.

Big Spring Independent School District officials announced this morning that classes were being dismissed at 12:30 p.m. today because of the weather. Forsan ISD and Coahoma ISD officials said they would dismiss classes at noon.

No announcement on the status of Friday’s classes has been made yet.
