Blizzard 2016

Newark was hit with more than two feet of snow. Please let us know about the City of Newark's response to the storm. Let us know what street you live on, what time it was plowed and whether it is passable now. We'll forward any complaints about streets not being plowed directly to administration of Mayor Ras Baraka. We'll compile this information so we know what the problems areas are for the next storm and work with the administration to better address these areas.

    Is crazy how the local streets are still buried with snow car getting stuck causing more chaos.

    I live on Parker Street between Verona and Montclair. It’s 6:08pm and no sign of a plow in the area! I work at a hospital so we are expected to be there tomorrow. The neighbors have made it worse by plowing their snow onto the street and making difficult to get through. Our homes are literally only feet from each other so there’s nowhere to put this snow. There needs to be a plow alongside a truck to dump it in cause the piles everywhere are taking up parking space. Please send someone to access this street as soon as possible.. This is very dangerous!

    Hi Anibal, the area of N. 9th St. Between Sprigdale and 4th Ave is in horrible conditions not one snow plow have come through. Vehicles are getting stuck and quite frankly it happens every year. We need help, we need to get to work and it doesn’t look like I will be able to get my car through the street.

    Thanks in advanced for anything you do we appreciate you.

    It’s sad to say that my street having many older residents and babies can not leave their homes due to our street Winthrop St not having salt nor any plowing done to it. And the very next block Verona Ave look totally different. Winthrop is always forgotten and left for last in many situations.
