A fast dump of snow causes havoc around the county

Snow quickly dumped on Cleburne County today causing numerous accidents and closings.

All area schools closed between 11:30 and noon as it became apparent that snow accumulation was more than anticipated and was sticking to the roads.

As the day has progressed various reports of accidents have come in from around the county.  Road crews began treating the streets in Heber Springs, but reports were still coming in of vehicles going sideways on Hwy 25B.  Police scanner reports indicated the bypass was also becoming slick. 

Initial report are that traffic is backed up for miles on from the dam area and in the Ida area.
