Welcoming Winter Storm Gia, 2019
Winter Storm Gia was named late Thursday afternoon with the number of people within the storm warning range passed 2 million (that number qualifies it as a Winter Storm) but has now surpassed 19 million people! The snow began in Denver, Colorado on Friday morning and quickly accumulated over 4 inches, with 18 inches being reported in some areas. Power outages, dangerous road conditions, and wet, heavy, thick sludge is now formed in masses in most areas effected by this new Winter Storm. Driving in these conditions are a recipe for danger, with tires slipping due to the inability to create traction on roadways, which result in cars colliding into one another. Warnings of dangerous driving conditions and heavy snow and/or ice in effected areas.
