Philadelphia to declare a snow emergency. Blizzard forecast for the shore
Managing Director Vanessa Garrett Harley announced that a Snow Emergency will be declared
Snow emergency routes, primary roads, and secondary roads will be serviced first, followed by residential streets.
Drivers are asked to allow extra time and maintain safe driving distances to allow for sudden stopping.
Storm conditions will also increase the risk of slippery roads on untreated roadways.
Philadelphia, where snow began to fall Friday morning, should get six to eight inches.
People on the New Jersey coast and in southern Delaware should look out for strong wind gusts that could exceed 50 miles an hour.
Brian Warner was stacking carts at a Giant supermarket outside of Wilmington Friday morning, as shoppers streamed in.
Patrice Hammond left with a full cart. She’s been tracking the storm and came to get everything she needs before it hits.
The storm could bring more than an inconvenience to other parts of the region.
