As the Houston-area braces for another round of wintry precipitation, drivers are continuing to be warned to stay off the road as much as possible. Houston TranStar lists more than 190 icy spots and the city of Katy Office of Emergency Management warns Interstate 10 is currently experiencing ‘very icy’ conditions.
Please stay home & off roads. Use extreme caution if traveling on I-10 due to very icy road conditions. Due to high call volumes, expect a longer response time. We are working diligently around the clock to provide essential services. We appreciate your patience & understanding. pic.twitter.com/FN8WLLOTgR— City of Katy OEM (@CityofKatyOEM) February 17, 2021
Avoid traveling if you can. If you have to drive, take it very slow and check your route before you go. Harris County’s OEM is warning about the hazards of black ice which is very hard to see when you’re driving.
Black ice is VERY DANGEROUS and highly transparent. You will not be able to see it when driving. Black ice creates hazardous driving conditions and increased risk of car accidents. Stay off the roads, especially when it is nighttime. Stay safe. Stay home. pic.twitter.com/ni7lcuufQB— Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (@ReadyHarris) February 17, 2021
