Sunday Snow Emergency Slows Things Down -- Until At Least Monday

Posted: Updated:

 

  The weather outside is frightful -- and it just keeps coming.  Krista Harju steps outside to check it out. 

A new all-time record is set for daily snowfall in Bismarck has been set.  Bismarck, Mandan and Morton County all declare a "Snow Emergency."  That means parking is prohibited and all vehicles must be removed from snow emergency routes.

In Bismarck, plows have been hitting the roads since 4:00 this morning.  And crews will work around the clock to keep emergency routes and major arterial streets open.  Residential streets will also be plowed, but not until the snow and wind subside.  Morton County will start clearing its roadways at 5:00 a.m.  And plows will tackle the streets in Mandan at 1:00 a.m.

Mandan city officials say their main priorities are snow emergency and school routes.  City officials ask residents to move vehicles off streets to aid in snow removal operations.  And when you're cleaning your driveway, be careful where you put the snow.  There's a fine of up to $1,000 for dumping snow onto any public street or right-of-way.
