UNDATED (WHTC) -- The sun may be shining in some parts of the Lakeshore but in Allegan County, southbound U.S. 131 has been shut down twice today between 100th Street and 142nd Street. The first time was due to a jack-knifed 18-wheeler. The Allegan County Sheriff and deputies working in the Wayland area are advising motorists to limit travel again today. If you do have to go out, police ask you to turn on your headlights, use your turn signals and make sure to clear all of your vehicles windows and lights. Another thing: if you do slide off, the vehicle helping you out should have emergency lights likea tow truck would so that other drivers will see you. Blowing snow is causing white-out conditions in some areas.
