With a winter storm that could potentially dump between 4 and 6 inches of snow, here's a reminder of what the different snow emergencies mean. As of right now, only the emergency declared has been for folks in Waterville. The city is asking residents not to park on the streets beginning at 11pm tonight.
Snow Emergency Levels:
LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy. Drive very cautiously.
LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.
LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to arrest.
