Spokane Valley

It’s here

Well, the snow we've all been eagerly anticipating is here. At the moment it is tough to see across the parking lot. The scanner is still fairly quiet, though I would expect that to pick up as the snow accumulates. So far there's a semi accident on Highway 195 near Babb Road with the driver still trapped inside. If any particular spots get nasty as the afternoon progresses, I'll let you know.

1:44 p.m. update: If anyone was planning to head over to Coeur d'Alene, use caution. The westbound lanes of I-90 are shut down between Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls due to a nine car accident. Roads are apparently very slick there with the Idaho State Patrol dealing with more than half a dozen accidents.

2:22 p.m. update: A six car pileup was just reported in the eastbound lanes of I-90 at Argonne. Emergency crews are on the way.

2:27 p.m. update: Three car accident at Bowdish and Mission. It's officially getting nasty out there.

3:12 p.m. update: Accident reports are continuing to come in steadily. Check here for information on the weather by reporter Mike Prager. Be very careful driving home tonight. 

3:32 p.m.: Heading away from the scanner. Everyone drive safely. Check here for school closure information tonight and tomorrow morning.
