A State of Emergency has been declared in the City of Rome, Oneida County.  Mayor Jacqueline Rizzo says ‘due to the deteriorating weather conditions….I have declared a State of Emergency effective at 11:00  a.m..”

Snow has been falling at a rapid pace in Rome since early this morning and is expected to continue falling at rates of 1-2” per hour through the early evening with worsening visibility due to gusting winds.

There have been multiple power outages throughout the city as a result of falling trees talking down power lines.

Mayor Izzo is asking all residents to remove parked cars from city streets and road by 1:00 p.m. as well as ceasing all non-essential travel beginning at 6:00 p.m. Friday until 6:00 a.m. Saturday to allow our snow removal crews to begin cleanup and improve road conditions.
