OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Monday afternoon, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and other city officials held a press conference to discuss the winter storm that's impacting the area and cleanup efforts.

A snow emergency was declared and will go into effect at midnight. During that time, parking on snow routes will not be permitted. There is no end to the snow emergency planned at this point due to additional storms throughout the week.

In some parts of the city, snow will be pushed into the center of the roadway to maintain pedestrian access to ramps, sidewalks and parking meters.

The city works department wants to remind people to not push snow into the road as it is illegal to do so and could create icy patches.

Contractors will begin clearing residential streets at 2 p.m. Snow-clearing efforts will continue throughout the week.
