There is a travel advisory for the City of Niagara Falls in place, effective immediately. Mayor Paul Dyster is asking all motorists to avoid all unnecessary travel.
Rapid accumulation of snow is creating hazardous driving conditions. Dyster says street crews are out working on the roads, and the best thing to do is stay out of their way.
Dyster is asking drivers to observe alternate parking arrangements and to try and park off the streets, to facilitate plowing.
