Cayuga County Sheriff Brian Schenck has issued a travel advisory, which is active until further notice.
“High winds are in the forecast for later Sunday and continuing into Monday morning. Wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour are expected and downed trees and power lines are likely. Trees and debris in roadways can create hazardous driving conditions along with the wind making driving difficult,” the Sheriff said in a press release.
Lake effect snow and freezing rain could also make travel difficult in northern portions of the County, which also prompted the advisory.
Schenck says that motorists and residents should stay away from downed power lines and report any hazardous conditions immediately by calling 911.
