Weekend weather wreaking havoc

Posted by wlpo on January 18, 2015

Rain “flash-freezing” on roads and sidewalks has made travel hazardous in the Northeast Sunday, causing crashes that have claimed at least 5 lives.  Pennsylvania State Police say a crash involving 30 to 50 vehicles on Interstate 76 outside Philadelphia killed 1 person, and 2 others died in a crash involving multiple vehicles on nearby Interstate 476.

On the West Coast, high winds left more than 65,000 customers without power in the Seattle area.  And in eastern Oregon, highway officials have partially reopened Interstate 84 after a massive crash blamed on black ice Saturday closed more than 160 miles of eastbound lanes.
