Beaver County Communities Dig Out After Snowstorm

MIDLAND (KDKA) — Things were returning to normal in two Beaver County communities hit hard by snow.

Rodney Marshall, with the New Brighton Street Department, was completing a 17-hour shift.

“Getting hungry more than tired,” he said. “Need to eat.”

Marshall says starting Monday afternoon, drivers were focused on keeping the main roads clear and then they started working on secondary streets.

Midland was blanketed by nine inches of snow.

Industry Police Chief Garold Miller says crews did a great job.

“From what I seen, it was coming faster than they could keep up with, but for what they had to work with, I think they did a real good job,” he said.

Jamie Nuskey, of New Sewickley, had trouble getting home in the snow Monday night, but her biggest problem today was shoveling her driveway.

Despite the hazardous road conditions, county officials say there were no major accidents involving injuries during the storm.

    Our road crews are GREAT! But they cant prevent stupid! People insist on driving around when they dont have to, and were well warned – when the snow is falling heavily or its icy theres not a lot to do about it until it breaks. The only people who should be compelled to be out are those who are forced to get or meet their kids, or are afraid they lose their jobs if they dont GET to work, or have to get the the doctors or hospital for a serious issue. We’re spoiled rotten by our road crews (we are blessed) YET certain safety considerations by BUSINESSES should be extended to their employees or clients during serious weather conditions.
