NEW – Johnstown area schools now closing due to weather conditions

JOHNSTOWN — Seven area school districts and the Greater Johnstown Career and Technology Center have now closed for the day after initially deciding on two-hour late starts.

A posting on the Westmont Hilltop Area School District web site reported, “Road crews are having trouble keeping the roads cleared. Conditions are changing too fast for safety.”

An administrative office at the Greater Johnstown Career and Technology Center said that all of the districts participating in the vo-tech programs have closed for the day.

In addition to Westmont Hilltop, the others are Greater Johnstown, Richland, Ferndale Area, Forest Hills, Conemaugh Township and Windber Area.

Cambria 911 is reporting there have been a few fender-bender accidents - both in Jackson Township and on Route 22 in the Cresson Area - but generally motorists are making it safely on snow-covered roads this morning.
