Snow hammers Northeast Ohio on Friday night

CLEVELAND - Snow devastated parts of Northeast Ohio on Friday night, slowing traffic to a standstill along major highways east of Cleveland.

Officials in Euclid warned drivers to avoid Interstate 90 in both directions after heavy snowfall slowed traffic to a near standstill. 

Fire officials responded to stuck vehicles near St. Claire Avenue and East 200 Street in the city. They also advised drivers to avoid Chardon and Highland Hills, with reports of more vehicles stuck in the snow.

Traffic officials confirmed the closure of Route 91 on I-90 eastbound in Lake County on Friday night. The thoroughfare has since opened.

Frontier Airlines issued a warning for fliers, telling them to expect delays while flying into Cleveland, Chicago and other Great Lakes airports. The advisory is in effect from Saturday through Sunday.

Customers are allowed to make an itinerary change through the airline to accommodate the weather. They may also request a refund for a canceled flight here.
