At noon today DPS Trooper Erik Burse said DPS had responded to 60 accidents since the icing began. This does not include the accidents worked by other departments around the county. Conroe alone worked over 50.
Burse called last nights ice the invisible enemy. He said unlike snow you cannot see the ice.
He expected tonight to not be as bad as some of the bridges and overpasses have dried and that TXDOT is working very hard to keep road surfaces clear.
