Dangerous Christmas Storm Approaches

On a danger scale of 1 to 10, K-Lakes Meteorologist Tony Schumacher says the approaching storm would be a nine. He says it is comparable to the Halloween blizzard of 1991. It is expected to be a wet, heavy blanket of new snow. And,despite its weight, strong winds could create drifts up to six feet deep.

Schumacher says because the storm will stick around for parts of three days, it will take a long time for road conditions to improve. He suggests a survival kit for motorists who might get stuck, and says holiday travel should be avoided during the height of the storm.
