Snowfall throughout DeKalb County brings nearly half foot of snow, hazardous road conditions, nearly 70 cars in ditches

DeKalb County remains in a Winter Storm Warning until 6 p.m. Sunday, and though the storm has passed, it brought with it about a half foot of snow to parts of the county and hazardous road conditions overnight.

DeKalb County received about 5 inches of snow, with greater snowfall totals in northern parts of the county, according to the National Weather Service Sunday, following a snowstorm which blew through Saturday evening and overnight.

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department responded to nearly 70 reports of cars in ditches, said DeKalb County Deputy Chief Andy Sullivan.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to 69 cars in ditches and eight vehicle accidents. He said plows are still out clearing roads as of 1:30 p.m. Sunday, so drivers should continue to use caution and allow for more time to get to their destinations.

Slippery road conditions and patchy blowing snow could still impact travel Sunday, and though temperatures remain moderate in the mid-30s, the county could see up to one more inch of snow until the warning is clear Sunday evening.
