Icy Conditions Prevail Throughout the Region
Slippery conditions are being reported all around the region.
Emergency Services and Police Agencies in the Twin Tiers say, while the air temperature in many spots may have been above freezing all night January 21 and into the morning of January 22, surface temperatures are colder and light rain and fog contacting those surfaces could freeze.
Very slippery spots are concentrated in the higher elevations and outlying areas but sidewalks may also be slick.
A number of schools in the Tiers called in delays.
Officials in Tioga County say there has been no official update to an advisory that was issued Friday informing residents of an ice jam in the Susquehanna River from the area of Hiawatha Island and extending east to Broome County. Authorities say anyone around the area rivers, especially in locations prone to flooding, should keep an especially close eye on conditions as snow melt continues to add to water levels and ice continues to break away and move through narrow spots along waterways.
Residents are reminded to stay away from rivers and streams and keep an eye on children and pets to keep them from getting near or on the ice.
Report any ice jam situations to local emergency services.
