Town plowing crews are expected to work into the night Thursday, as officials said the latest winter storm is not expected to end until 5 a.m. on Friday.
While town officials have declared several snow emergencies this year, Murray said she is not concerned about the snow-fighting equipment. She explained that after each storm, officials assess the entire fleet of plows and other trucks to replace and fix any damaged or worn equipment. With the frequency of inclement weather in the new year, Murray said this has happened on almost a weekly basis.

Although there were no major power outages as of Thursday afternoon, town officials opened warming centers across the area to give residents a safe place to go in case blackouts occur. The locations of the warming centers can be found here

Murray urged residents to stay safe as the storm progresses, in addition to checking on elderly neighbors in the inclement weather. She also said residents can help tow crews as they plow by keeping their cars out of the streets and shoveling snow onto their lawns rather than into the road.
