The weather has improved, but driving conditions have not for a number of people in the area.
Highway 9 is still closed between Drumheller and Hanna, and Hanna is further isolated by the closure of Highway 36 north and south of Highway 9.
For those looking for an alternative, Highway 570 is closed east of East Coulee and Highway 56 south is still listed as closed to traffic.
Apparently, yesterday's snow froze overnight and Carillion Canada has all of its equipment out this morning trying to get things open again. We'll let you know when we know more.
Monday's storm stranded dozens of travellers: people were put up in the community halls at Delia and Rockyford, and Hanna even opened up its community centre after all available hotel rooms were booked.
