A strong storm will be crossing the Ohio Valley Sunday, bringing snow to West Michigan, with some areas perhaps seeing as much as 10-14" of accumulation. Snowfall will be heaviest south as opposed to north, so near/south of I-94 is where the highest accumulations are expected... 10-14" possible. However, Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Ottawa, and Kent could see anywhere from 6-10". Additionally, gusty winds will be blowing the snow quite a bit, causing drifting on roads along with poor visibility. Travel is discouraged from late Saturday night through Sunday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for the following counties in West Michigan, effective until 6 am Monday: Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, Kent, Ionia, Ottawa, Van Buren,  St.Joseph, Branch, and Hillsdale. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Muskegon, Newaygo, Mecosta, and Montcalm  until 6 am Monday.

Report: Mich. workers lost coverage at high rate in 2011

Report: Mich. workers lost coverage at high rate in 2011 story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new report reveals that people in Michigan lost workplace health care coverage at a greater rate than any other state over the past decade.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that nearly 63 percent of Michigan residents received their insurance through a job in 2011.

That figure is actually down from 78 percent in the year 2000.

The foundation says that higher costs translate to fewer employers offering insurance coverage and fewer employees accepting it when it's offered.
