The NYC Snowstorm officially started the clean up process after more than 2 feet of snow dumped over the five boroughs.
Not a great weekend for all citizens living in New York. This was the second largest snowfall in the city’s history. On Monday Mayor de Blasio issued a travel advisory from Monday to Friday night. The snow can melt into black ice, which is dangerous for the roads. Other citizens are to be careful walking through the streets. They put most of there focus in Queens due to the amount of snow in certain areas. De Blasio said nearly 920 of the sanitation department trucks were focused on Queens more than any other borough.
“Some of those streets a plow is not effective. The snow is too deep and there is not enough room, so we are literally going in and dragging it out,” said Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia according to ABC 7. “Queens is our first priority for today to make sure we get all of those small streets open.”
Few men from 51 to 80 died of a heart attack while shoveling the snow. It is dangerous for the older adults to be doing that in front of their house. They are also looking for temporary help starting at $13.50 on cleaning out the snow. Be sure to check for more information throughout the week on the snow melting away.
