Wild traffic video, tweets react to Buffalo ice storm

The ice storm that struck Buffalo Wednesday accumulated three-tenths of an inch of ice by noon, making driving hazardous across major thoroughfares.

Twitter account Buffalo Digest (@BuffaloDigest) shared a video from user Alex Voronin of an accident involving multiple cars on the I-190 North, near the ramp to the I-290. A tractor trailer slides on the black ice, bouncing off the barrier, while the car behind it fails to gain traction.

According to The News' Keith McShea's report on the storm, the NFTA Metro Bus and Rail closed surface-level train transportation this morning (it has now reopened). Drivers are asked to exercise caution on the roads.

For those marveling at the beauty of the ice, Buffalonians are encouraged to tag #YourWNYWeather in a tweet to @TheBuffaloNews for possible inclusion in a photo gallery.

Here are tweets, both serious and lighthearted, related to the storm:
