Travel conditions throughout York County continue to deteriorate due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy.
Travel is becoming increasingly more hazardous and difficult due to fallen trees, limbs, wires and isolated flooding. As of 3:30 p.m. today, there had been approximately 55 911 calls placed today to report problems with road conditions.
