    Help me analyze this sentence, please.

    Hello, there. I read this sentence.

    "There are also warnings to watch out for slippery pavements when you're out and about as loads more people are being treated in hospital after falling over on the ice."

    is the above sentence is combination of "There are also warnings to watch out for slippery pavements when you're out" and "there are also warnings about as loads more people are being treated in hospital after falling over on the ice? And does "about as loads more people" means "great many people"?

    Re: Help me analyze this sentence, please.

    Your guess is as good as mine about what that means. In addition to "about as loads more people" I would also question "slippery pavements" and "falling over on the ice". Peculiar.
