For those who have to brave the highways, Orange County Emergency Management officials are warning that I-87 is open, but due to multiple crashes, is at a standstill.

The department reported around 4 p.m., Thursday that traffic is not moving between Exit 16 and Exit 17 (Harriman and Newburgh), and for motorists to use alternate roadways if possible.

I-84 and Route 17 remain open and are passable, but conditions are treacherous, the department said.

At this time there were no road closures, but conditions can change at a moment's notice, emergency officials warned.

For updated traffic information, Emergency Management officials ask that motorist visit: https://511ny.org or http://www.thruway.ny.gov .
