Although the hurricane and storm have so far been milder than the weather service warned yesterday, there is no hope of the wind coming down in the next day.
The pre-lunch tour of Lääne Elu on the roads of Lääne County confirmed that the snowfall and the continuing blizzard have made road and driving conditions difficult.
The traffic conditions were good before noon on the Ääsmäe-Haapsalu highway, which is one of the state highways for which the highest level of condition has been established for road maintenance. Sawmills had also made a turn on smaller state roads, but in some places there had already been winds and ruts on the roads.
Raido Randmaa, Director of the Road Administration of the Transport Board, confirmed in the morning that more than 100 road maintenance machines are on state roads. “Our primary task is to keep the main roads clean,” said Randmaa.
As snowfall and blizzards continue, you must be prepared for the fact that it will take time to clean the side and support roads and the driving conditions will be difficult. Roads have become slippery and there may be snowballs on roads exposed to the wind. The continuous snowfall will definitely last for the next 24 hours.
“We ask road users to be careful, if possible to stay at home and avoid getting into traffic,” said Randmaa. “However, if it is necessary to go into traffic, make sure that the car is in good technical condition, the car has proper winter tires underneath and keep the car’s tank and telephone battery full.”
