RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- The Virginia Department of Transportation is continuing to urge motorists to limit their travel on roadways until unsafe weather conditions pass.
Officials say flooding, high winds and downed trees and power lines have caused some road closures.
Effects from the storm began in the Hampton Roads region and central Virginia on Monday and then began impacting northern Virginia. Meanwhile cold temperatures are impacting the western part of the state, with heavy snowfall expected in higher elevations.
As of Monday night, about 100 roads were closed in eastern and northern Virginia, mainly from flooding. Icy patches also were being reported in western Virginia.
All tunnels and water crossings were open Monday night in the Hampton Roads region.
