Half The Quad Cities Are Still Under A Snow Emergency
Knock on wood, but it seems the worst of the snow is over for now. After record snowfalls yesterday and last night, most everyone in the Quad Cities woke to find their cars and yards buried, with weather warnings in effect.
For half the Quad Cities – specifically Davenport and East Moline – snow emergencies are actually still in effect.
According to WQAD, Davenport's snow emergency started at 6 a.m. Sunday, November 25 and goes through until 5 p.m. today. They are reminding residents that "Parking on snow routes is prohibited during a snow emergency. Vehicles in violation may be ticketed or towed. Motorists can park for free in any of the city’s three parking ramps from 5 p.m. Saturday through 7 a.m. Monday."
For East Moline, the snow emergency extends even longer, not set to expire until 8 a.m. tomorrow. Again, all vehicles must be moved from designated snow routes in the area.
Snow emergencies are nothing to take lightly, so be aware of what's going on in your neighborhood!
