CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotteans woke up to snow Sunday morning. With that came car crashes, power outages and even a few business ventures. However, with the snow melted, we expect a different story over the next few days.
While not a lot of snow came to Charlotte, there were still plenty of problems that came from the winter weather. Crews were left to clean up after several crashes and power outages Sunday morning.
There were about 4,700 without power in Mecklenburg County, 870 in Gaston County, 744 in Lancaster County and 351 without power in York County.
DOT crews say black ice should not be an issue in Charlotte Monday. DOT officials said drivers will need to be careful on the roads in the coming mornings, adding that those making their commutes are advised to make sure they are mindful of shady spots, where it tends to have the highest potential for ice.
