2014 winter storm shuts down Jeff Davis County
Extreme winter weather closed businesses and schools throughout the county on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Tractors and dump trucks were no match for slippery roads as freezing rain, sleet and snow packed the streets. “We got so much sleet,” said Supervisor Corky Holliman. “That’s what put us in such bad shape.”
Travelers are advised to only drive in an emergency. Ice will continue to melt on Wednesday afternoon, but an expected Wednesday night hard freeze will still make roads treacherous.
