Snow closes schools, affects roads across B.C.

There is snow on the roads across large areas of B.C. this morning, including Vancouver, Victoria and large areas of the province's Interior.

Traffic in Metro Vancouver is moving slowly on the slippery roads and drivers are reminded that if they don't have snow tires, they should not be on the roads.

Accidents, closed roads, spun out vehicles and abandoned vehicles have been reported on many of the main routes.

Public transit is expected to be very busy as a result of the driving conditions and everyone is reminded to dress warmly, and to be prepared for long delays.

School closures reported

- All schools in Campbell River District 72 closed

- Alberni Valley Schools closed (not entire district so far, just in the valley)
