The following information is from the City of Royal Oak:
A snow emergency has been declared in the City of Royal Oak as of 7:57 a.m., March 12.
Snow Emergency conditions are generally defined as a snowfall of four inches or more and will remain in effect until your street has been plowed. All vehicles on residential streets are to be removed or will be towed. Vehicles are to remain off the streets until plow trucks have gone through the area. Once a snow emergency is called and plowing begins, it takes approximately 24-36 hours to plow all city streets, depending on how much snow has fallen. Check here for additional snow emergency information.
Editor's note: Plowing in neighborhoods will begin at the north end of the city for this snow emergency. DPS Director Greg Rassel does not anticipate residential plowing to begin until late in the evening. Stick with Patch as we track the progress of the plows.
