Weather-Related Announcements 1/20/18
Updated forecasts from the National Weather Service show with high certainty that Eastern Wayne County is to now receive more than 18" of snow by 9 P.M. on Monday with wind gusts exceeding 50 mph. City crews will do their best
during the day on Monday to keep emergency routes open during blizzard conditions. However if conditions deteriorate to a white out situation plows may have to be pulled from the routes and residential streets may not be plowed until late Monday night or early Tuesday morning depending upon when the winds lessen enough to allow for visibility.
Please plan accordingly and avoid using city streets if at all possible once the snow storm begins Sunday night until Tuesday morning. If your vehicle becomes stuck in the street this creates a dangerous situation for our city
crews and increases the time until they can open all streets. Thank you for your cooperation.
The City of Pierce has declared a snow emergency which will go into effect starting Sunday evening, January 21st at 7:00 p.m. All vehicles need to be removed from all city streets prior to the time of the snow emergency or they could be ticketed and/or towed. The snow emergency will remain in effect until further notice.
The University of Nebraska at Kearney Honor Band and Choral Clinic and Concert scheduled for Monday (Jan. 22) has been cancelled due to the winter storm expected to hit the region. More than 775 students from 120 high schools in Nebraska and Kansas were expected to participate. With many schools planning to travel to Kearney Sunday, event organizers felt it was necessary to make an early decision and cancel the event for the safety of all involved.
