The heavy snow has led to the closure of Michigan’s state government with the exception of offices handling critical functions. The same goes for county governments in West Michigan.

The Michigan Department of Transportation and county road commissions have all hands on deck working to clear roadways.

“We’ve got all available steel is on the road. All the counties, all the cities are hard at work right now. They’ve been busy since, you know, the wee hours of the morning last night. So, it’s going to continue on into this evening.”

More than 1,000 flights have been canceled at Chicago's largest airports as a snowstorm crawls through several Midwestern states ahead of frigidly cold weather. Those cancellations along with the heavy snow fall here has impacted travel at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

“We have had a lot of cancellations.”
