Cities declare snow emergencies, urge not to travel

Posted: Updated:
Cities across eastern Iowa are declaring snow emergencies Sunday, and urging drivers to stay off the roads if possible.

Under a snow emergency, parking on all city streets and emergency snow routes is prohibited. Cars can be towed, and drivers can be fined while the emergency is in effect.

Authorities are advising not to travel Sunday. If on the roads, cities remind drivers that trucks will be spreading salt and sand, and to remain at least 50 feet behind snowplows.

Notifications for cities under snow emergencies will scroll on KWWL along with cancellations.
