The Kenai Peninsula saw the first big snowfall of the season this past weekend, with snow totaling over a foot in some areas, leaving drivers sliding across the road.
The weekend storm brought significant snowfall, icy roads and high winds, leading to poor driving conditions all weekend long.
Several accidents were called in after drivers lost control along the Seward and Sterling highways, including two single-vehicle collisions. One driver lost control near Mile 57 of the Seward Highway and hit the guardrail. Another lost control around Mile 45 of the Sterling Highway and entered a northbound ditch. No major injuries have been reported.
Officials recommend that drivers slow down on the roads and be cognizant of how weather impacts their commute.
Kenai Peninsula Borough School District schools have remained open, but the district said that if anyone feels unsafe traveling to school they can call in for an excused absence.
The Accuweather forecast predicts more snow for Kenai and Soldotna in the coming days.
