Police advise residents to be careful when going out during the next few days. Murrysville police Chief Tom Seefeld recommended avoiding driving.
“Stay home if possible, and limit traveling on the roads to allow the public-works department the chance to address the road conditions,” Seefeld said. “This will also help to keep the number of accidents to a minimum. Be smart, be careful and check on your family and neighbors to make sure they are OK during the next couple days.”
