And they call Chicago the Windy City. The winds around Prince George this past week have certainly been quite extraordinary. The strong gusty winds have resulted in extreme driving conditions. The high winds are causing sudden periods of low visibility, areas of drifting snow as well as extreme icy conditions in areas. These conditions are creating havoc for motorists, some of whom are struggling against the heavy winds just to keep their vehicles on the road, say the Prince George RCMP.
We join with the police in urging motorists to use extreme caution if they have to drive in these conditions and ensure you have appropriate apparel in case you break down or get stuck.
Winter has been here for a few weeks, although it will officially arrive this week, so drive accordingly. We want everyone to have a safe and happy holiday season.
