Snow falling too fast for crews to plow roads in Benton and Franklin Counties


    TRI-CITIES, Wash-- Crews have stopped plowing roads in Benton and Franklin Counties because snow is falling to quickly to keep up with demand according to city officials.

    First responders in Franklin County have received over 100 calls for crashes and spin outs, according to Franklin County Administrator, Keith Johnson.

    County officials are urging people to stay inside if they do not have to drive.

    Johnson said at this time no roads in Franklin County have been closed but anticipate road closures to come as the storm continues to hit our area.

    Johnson believes this snow fall is worse than what the Tri-Cities saw two years ago because more snow is falling in a quicker amount of time and wind is causing snow drifts and poor visibility on the roadways.
