Icy weather gone, but roads still slick

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

As South Mississippians wake up this morning, they'll see a thick layer of ice on their windshields.  They'll see sleet and even snow covering yards and roofs.  And they'll see pockets of ice on area roads.

Bridges across most of South Mississippi are either closed, or reduced to one lane in each direction.

Across the southern half of the state, the highway patrol responded to more than 350 accidents.

Some businesses have opened.  Others are asking employee to take one more day off while the ice melts away.

Curfews issued in several South Mississippi communities have been lifted.

Gulfport Biloxi International Airport is open.  But, no flights are expected to arrive there until after lunch.

Stay with WLOX News and WLOX.com for the latest developments on the winter storm that walloped Mississippi.
