Comal County Sheriff’s Office warns the public to stay off roadways after deputies responded to six accidents over a three-hour period this morning.

FM 3159 from FM 2673 to State Highway 46 was closed but reopened, according to reports on Comal County Scanner Facebook page, which monitors police radio but is not affiliated with law enforcement.  Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) crews sprayed the roadway to treat accumulations of ice.

A truck flipped at FM 2673 and Old Cranes Mill Road around 8:50 a.m., leaving the driver “banged up but out.”

“If it’s icy inside, stay inside, don’t slip and slide,” Comal County ESD No. 3, better known as Canyon Lake Fire/EMS, posted on Facebook. “Take proper precautions when using space heaters or using your fireplace for additional heat. We’re here if you need us but we also would prefer to stay inside.”

Today’s not a good day to be stranded anywhere.

The U.S. National Weather Service Austin-San Antonio this afternoon issued a Wind Chill Warning and Advisory which will remain in effect until Tuesday morning.

Wind chills will range from 10 degrees below zero to 10 degrees above zero.
