Sudbury Police and Highway Department request that all residents comply with the winter parking ban which states, no vehicles shall park on any road once snow removal operations have begun.

As of Thursday February 7, 2013 at 12:00 MEMA is advising all Municipalities that a record winter storm with blizzard conditions and up to two feet of snow fall will begin in force sometime Friday in the early afternoon hours. There may be periods of snow prior to Friday early afternoon as well, and times are subject to change.

MEMA has advised Cities and Towns that from Friday Evening into Saturday Morning expect heavy snow, with blizzard conditions and up to five foot drifts in areas prone to drifting.

It is strongly suggested that you prepare ahead of time and be off the roads by the time the storm hits in force. By planning ahead you will help Sudbury and the State Plows keep roads open for emergency traffic as some roads may become impassible due to the heavy amounts of snow predicted.

Chief Miles of the Sudbury Fire Department wishes to also caution all residents to stay clear of any downed wires and call 911 if they see any.
