Yorktown highway crews work to keep storm drains open

For the most part, Northern Westchester dodged the bullet on Friday?s storm, but there's now concern with what do to with all the runoff.

The storm started as an ice and snowstorm Thursday night, leaving a coating of ice on cars and roads. Highway crews were able to salt and sand the roads but driving conditions were difficult. By the end of the morning rush the storm changed to rain. Yorktown Highway Superintendent Eric DiBartolo says his crews are now concentrating on keeping storm drains open.

As the temperatures drop Friday evening, however, the roads are once again expected to become slippery and dangerous. Drivers are urged to use caution.
