Wood Buffalo RCMP is warning residents to use caution while driving today or just avoid driving all together.

Freezing rain has led to multiple collisions throughout Fort McMurray and surrounding areas.

Eye witness reports are saying Highway 63 between Confederation Way and Thickwood Boulevard is at a standstill with emergency crews on scene.

Corporal Erika Laird says┬áthere hasn’t been any reports of injuries but be very careful on the roads as “the whole city is a skating rink.”

For those who do need to drive, adjust your speed accordingly and be cautious when approaching intersections and crosswalks.
