Storm reminded us of I-78 traffic backup

It's been 7 years since the big problem in northern Berks County

7th anniv of Interstate 78 storm

The aftermath of the storm we're endured the last two days may bring back memories of just seven years ago.

Friday marks the seventh anniversary of the Valentine's Day disaster on Interstate 78 in Berks County.

Hundreds of motorists were stranded in their vehicles on I-78, some for more than 24 hours.

Several drivers had to leave their vehicles and look for places to get warm that were within walking distance of the highway.
