Slick roads, buses on snow routes; power outages

Posted by Seattle Times staff

The freeze overnight has caused a very slick commute in the Seattle area Tuesday morning. Drivers are being cautioned that if they don't absolutely have to go out, stay home.

Streets, roads and highways in the area are slick because snow from overnight froze, making compact snow and ice, and causing cars and trucks to spin out throughout the area.

Schools are closed in many areas, including Seattle Schools. The University of Washington has canceled operations and classes Tuesday at its Seattle, Tacoma and Bothell campuses.

King County Metro buses are operating on snow routes Tuesday morning and some routes have been canceled because of the slippery conditions. Metro officials are also urging people in general to stay home and off the roads if they can.

The Associated Press is reporting that tens of thousands of customers in the Puget Sound area are without power due to the storm that passed through the area Sunday and Monday.
