The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department said it has not had many weather-related issues during the past few days as snow fell in East Tennessee and temperatures dipped again into the teens—and even lower.
“A few reports of traffic-related incidents such as cars in the ditch, but only one accident that had minor injuries,” Chief Deputy Mark Lucas said in an e-mail to reporters.
Lucas said most primary roads and state routes are clear, but many rural roads are still icy and snow-covered.
“Since the temperature is still below freezing, they will remain that way until it warms up,” Lucas said.
Many businesses and schools have been closed or opening late, and some meetings and events have been rescheduled. (See a partial list here.)
Lucas said sheriff’s deputies are still patrolling and answering emergency calls using four-wheel drive vehicles.
