Manchester residents stay home, crews clean up after storm

MANCHESTER — More than 80 personnel and 45 pieces of equipment were deployed by Manchester Public Works on Wednesday in response to the major snowstorm that socked the area.

Tim Clougherty, Deputy Director of Manchester Public Works, said during the day that the snow was not being too troublesome.
Snowplow crews were helped, in part, by scant traffic observed across the city.

"We always advise people to limit their travel on days like these," Clougherty said. It appeared city residents heeded that advice for much of the day.

Clougherty said around 65 percent of the city's snow removal budget has been consumed, a tally that was made before the latest storm had cleared out. Manchester's snow removal budget is approximately $1.2 million.

A snow emergency, with no parking on city streets — was to remain in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday.

The winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service was scheduled to remain in effect until 1 a.m. Thursday.

Stormy weather along the Eastern Seaboard, and across much of the East itself, contributed to a number of flight cancellations and delays at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport on Wednesday. The airport recommends travelers contact their airline for various flight status.

The Manchester School District had no school due to the snowstorm, the third snow day of 2014. The last day of school for students is June 12, according to the district calendar.
