Escuelas seguirán cerradas

La mezcla de lluvia y hielo que cayó durante la madrugada de este martes, obligó el cierre de escuelas y oficinas públicas y privadas de todo el norte de Texas.

Las autoridades lanzaron la alerta desde el fin de semana cuando el pronóstico marcó que la ola gélida que afecta todo el centro y la costa este de Estados Unidos llegaría como tormenta invernal también al norte de Texas.

Y es que después de la lluvia, las temperaturas descendieron a 20 grados farenheit (menos 7 grados centígrados) pero prevén que continúa descendiendo la temperatura hasta los 13 grados F.

Lo peligroso de esta situación, aparte de las temperaturas congelantes es la formación del hielo negro en las calles y carreteras, lo que hace imposible transitar sobre ellas. Y quienes se aventuran, corren el riesgo de terminar varados y ser parte de algún percance automovilístico como ha sucedido en otros años cuando se han registrado más de 500 accidentes en un sólo día por condiciones climáticas similares.

El aeropuerto Love Field de Dallas sigue cerrado temporalmente  y el internacional DFW ha cancelado  300 vuelos, por la situación en otros aeropuertos.  Varios vuelos durante el amanecer por los fuertes vientos acompañados de hielo que azotó la región. Pero ya fueron reabiertos.

El servicio de transporte público DART suspendió a operación del tren ligero. Aunque los autobuses si operaron. De la misma manera, el tren TRE que corre de Fort Worth a Dallas y viceversa, reporta demoras en su operación.

Decenas de distritos escolares cancelaron clases en todos sus niveles, unos lo hicieron desde anoche y otros hoy muy temprano. Autoridades calculan que más de 150 alumnos del área Metropolitana Dallas-Fort Worth debieron quedarse en casa.

La mayoría de universidades públicas y privadas, así como iglesias y clubes sociales suspendieron actividades para el día de hoy.

Ya se empezaron a reportar los primeros accidentes automovilísticos menores en varias ciudades. Aunque no hay lesionados.

La carretera interestatal I-20 a la altura de Duncanville está cerrada de oeste a este, ya que un camión perdió el control y quedó atravesado en los 4 carriles.

Se ven afectados eventos relacionados con el Super Bowl

Debido a la tormenta invernal que sorprendió al área, una carpa gigante que se encontraba instalada en Fair Park en Dallas colapsó.

Según imágenes en video de medios locales la estructura blanca se hundió dejando al descubierto el escenario.

En esa área estaban programados a realizarse diferentes eventos relacionados con los festejos del Super Bowl  incluyendo una fiesta organizada por P. Diddy.
