PREPARES FOR MAJOR SNOW STORM

 

HARRISBURG – Mayor Eric Papenfuse said Wednesday the city’s Public Works crews are preparing for a major snow storm that the National Weather Service says could drop an estimated 8-12 inches of snow onto Harrisburg beginning early Thursday.

“We are closely monitoring the weather situation and our Public Works crews are on alert,” Papenfuse said. “Trucks will be plowing and salting early in the morning to keep our major roadways open.”

Public Works has suspended sanitation and recycling pickups for Thursday due to the threatened snow storm.

The National Weather Service in State College says the winter storm warning is in effect from 1 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday for our region.

Announcements on the city’s preparations for the storm will be available on its website at www.harrisburgpa.gov. Residents can also get updates via Twitter (@thecityofhbg) and Facebook (The City of Harrisburg, PA).
