JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Region 8 residents took to social media Wednesday afternoon as rain turned to sleet turned to heavy snow.

Once sleet started to fall in Northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri, reports of car wrecks and cars in ditches poured in to Twitter.

One tweet, sent out by Rob Wilson, shows a truck in a water filled ditch near Otwell.

Jonesboro E-911 sent out many tweets describing problem areas in and around Jonesboro.

"Traffic Jonesboro: Reports on HWY 351 north of hill-top area: 2-cars in the ditch. Police dispatched. Please use caution!"

Another tweet urged people to keep off the roadways.

"Traffic Jonesboro-Police & Rescue dispatched to Dan Ave @ the American Legion accident w injuries. Please stay home if all possible," the tweet read.

As the sleet transitioned into snow, residents sent in photos of how much wintry weather was accumulating in their area.

Mel Coleman sent a photo from Salem Wednesday afternoon of near white-out conditions.

Hours later, Bryan Mullaney messaged Region 8 News on Facebook with a photo of just how much snow accumulated in Salem.
