Alexander County turned into a Winter Wonderland Friday when a predicted storm dumped snowfall across the region.
Alexander County Schools dismissed around 1:30 pm. All Athletic events were postponed as well.
The wet snowfall contributed to a significant number of accidents on Alexander County roadways but according to Emergency Communications, no significant injuries were reported. Roadways are snow covered and travel is hazardous. The North Carolina Department of Transportation is working the roadways around the clock.
Falling trees and tree limbs have caused a number of service interruptions for both Energy United and Duke Energy customers. Crews are responding as outages are reported.
The county landfill, convenience sites, library, and Rocky Face Park will remain closed on Saturday.
