Mason City: Snow piles are restricting drivers' visibility

Posted: Updated:
MASON CITY (AP) -

Large snow piles at intersections have prompted authorities in Mason City to ask motorists for help if they notice locations with dangerously limited visibility.

Repeated snowstorms have left Mason City with a thick cover of snow that gets even deeper along streets where plows have pushed the snow to the side.

Mason City Police Sgt. Tiffany Creekmur tells the Globe Gazette that if people see piles that obstruct motorists' views, they should call the police. The department will relay the information to the city maintenance department, which can use plows to cut down the piles.

Those piles could get even higher in the next few days as the forecast for northern Iowa calls for frigid temperatures with a chance of snow.
