DETROIT (WWJ) – Several metro Detroit communities have declared snow emergencies, meaning people have to get their cars off the streets, or else they face the possibility of getting a ticket and/or having their cars towed.

Snow emergencies are currently in effect in the following communities:

AUBURN HILLS

DEARBORN  (The outdoor sirens will sound at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17 to alert people to the snow emergency)

OAK PARK

SOUTH LYON

If you have questions about whether your city is under a snow emergency, you can go online to the City Hall office in your town or call your local police department’s non-emergency number.

Meanwhile, Wayne County Department of Public Service Snow Crews are already out taking care of the “snow” business. The full fleet — about 1-hundred plows are coating the roads right now with a layer of salt.

Spokesman Cindy Dingell says they’re prepared for this latest blast of winter weather.

Dingell says the salt should stick to surfaces this time — because the temperatures are expected to rise into the 20’s — instead of falling into single digits.
