Winter Storm Message from Mayor & Council
JANUARY 21, 2014
Another strong winter storm is headed our way with a winter storm warning in effect beginning today from 10 am to 6 am Wednesday. Significant snowfall expected today and tonight will be followed immediately by bitterly cold air. Snowfall accumulations are expected with totals in excess of eight to ten inches.
Blowing and drifting snow will become problematic as winds increase with gusts of 35-40 mph possible. Wind chills are predicted to be single digits tonight.
As they always are, our Department of Public Works crews stands ready to plow streets again and keep our roadways as passable and safe as possible. However, please keep in mind that with the heavy snowfall anticipated and the blowing winds, it will be challenging to keep all of Howell’s roads clear during the storm. Our hard working, dedicated crews will be doing their very best.
In addition, police officers and emergency services stand ready to help keep everyone safe. We thank them in advance for their hard work and caring commitment.
Safety is always top priority. While there is no travel advisory yet, please think twice about getting out in the storm. A safer decision – if at all possible depending on your circumstance – will be to stay warm at home!
Streets will be cleared as much as possible. If everyone will do their part to remain indoors and warm, we will all get through this storm together – as we always do.
The Office of Emergency Management and the Administration will continue to monitor weather conditions. Any further updates will be posted on our website. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding
