Dusting Of Snow, Ice For New Hanover

Dusting Of Snow, Ice For New Hanover Featured

By / Local News / Wednesday, 25 February 2015 05:00

New Hanover County Schools were closed on Tuesday and put on a two-hour delay for Wednesday. Most local government offices closed at 3PM Tuesday. There were radio reports that Snow's Cut Bridge would be closed on Tuesday, but those reports were false. The Town never had plans to close the bridge. Power flickered on an off throughout the day as freezing rain continued to build on area power lines and transformers.
Tuesday night around 500 people in Kure Beach were without power after a transformer went out. Roadways were not as icy as in previous storms in January and February of last year. That's due in large part to recent warm temperatures in the area. The warm asphalt helped prevent impassable road conditions.
