The City of Bend has everything they can find with a snowplow out plowing streets. City officials and crews are dealing with the largest dumping of snow in a six-hour period then the city has experienced in decades. Justin Finestone with the City of Bend explains their priorities: “It’s getting the roads cleared, as it gets colder tonight we will see some freezing and we want to get the roads cleared before that happens so we can treat the roads with mag chloride or rocks. You have to get most of the snow off first.   And then flooding, if it continues to warm up or rain, we may see some flooding in the underpasses, so other crews are out clearing drains. We’ve got our pumps on standby and they are ready to run out to the underpasses and clear those if they start filling up as well.” Finestone says the City has an Emergency Operations Center up and running. Their recommendation is if you can stay home, please do so.
