BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - Bluefield City Manager Jim Ferguson tells WVVA News that city residents are urged to postpone any trick-or-treat activities until Thursday -- when the threat of severe weather conditions has subsided.

Several counties and towns have moved their trick-or-treat times in the wake of the snowstorm that has dumped several inches of snow on the region.

PRINCETON (WVVA) - Mercer County Commissioner Jay Mills says residents are "strongly urged" not to trick-or-treat either Tuesday or Wednesday evening due to the severity of the weather situation.

There's no official word on if or when a make-up date may be rescheduled.

Some communities have formally announced rescheduling plans. The towns of Richlands and Oak Hill have both rescheduled for Saturday at 6-8 p.m. Rainelle's trick-or-treating will be postponed for a later date. Raleigh County and the City of Beckley have rescheduled for Saturday from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

While WVVA News has not received official word on cancellations or reschedulings from many communities, snow is expected to continue into this evening, making trick-or-treating hazardous.

Parents are advised to use their best judgement.
