Storm Lake's first snow emergency declared on Monday will continue until Wednesday morning as Storm Lake City workers planned overnight efforts to keep the streets safe. The snow ban is expected to end at 6 a.m. Wednesday. No parking is allowed on streets from 10 p.m.-6 a.m. during snow emergencies (2-6 a.m. in the downtown area, no parking in the two downtown parking lots.) Cars in violation today may be ticketed or towed.
Icy streets caused a few minor accidents Monday, and a couple of vehicle rollover incidents were reported on area roads.
