BLAKESLEE, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — As this storm continues to drop large amounts of snow, one of the hardest hit areas is Monroe County.
An Eyewitness News crew was near the intersection of Routes 115 and 940. We are seeing a steady snowfall and the winds are picking up.
Roads here are passable but slippery. The snow and wind has been getting more intense over the past several hours. We saw people doing what they had to do to get around and keep access open to their homes and businesses. Most people are taking it all in stride.
“Let me put it this way. I went south to Florida last year. I made a mistake. I should have gone this year. This year the weather is really much worse than I’ve seen in 20 years up here,” Don Baad of Pocono Lake said.
Local and state police advise if you have to travel tonight in this part of the Poconos be aware of rapidly changing conditions. We found in our travels that in one location the roads were in decent shape but just a short distance away, not so much.
