Westchester cleans up after the first major snowstorm of the season
Road crews and residents were spending Sunday cleaning up from a two-day storm that dumped more than a foot of snow on Westchester. County roadways were treacherous for the better part of two days as residents were warned to stay inside. Officials still say, while the main arteries are clean, secondary roads are very dangerous.
The storm caused problems across the county. On Friday, it took some Yonkers school children more than six hours to get home because the buses could not navigate the hills of Executive Boulevard. On Saturday, firefighters had trouble battling a blaze in Mount Vernon because of the blizzard conditions. Despite the harsh weather, Con Edison reported no outages from the storm.
