A state of emergency has been called in Dufferin County because of nasty winter weather.
For days now, the area has been hit with high winds and snowfall, causing blowing snow and dangerous driving conditions.
Over the weekend, there were hundreds of collisions on county roads and about 400 drivers were stranded and put up in temporary shelters.
Today, the blowing snow continues and with city resources maxed out, officials have decided to make the declaration.
Chief administrative officer Sonya Pritchard says the declaration allows the county to ask for assistance from the province.
Emergency Management Ontario will help with clearing the snow off the roads.
Eight county roads are closed today because of the conditions.
