This just in from the City of Spokane: snow removal crews are once again working to clear emergency routes and major arterials as the snow continues to pile up. Plows have moved to main streets but graders remain in the residential streets, with the second round of residential plowing expected to be completed today.
Temperatures currently are below freezing, but are expected to increase during the day. Some street flooding is possible. Citizens are asked to clear storm drains, if possible, to help minimize street flooding.
Spokane Fire Department officials also are asking people to clear away snow from hydrants to allow for access during emergencies.
