While buses were running on Centre Avenue, there were no buses to be found on Bedford or Webster Avenues by Wednesday evening.

A Port Authority spokesperson said they’ve had problems with some snow-covered streets in both the Hill District and on Mount Washington during the storm.

Neighbors say only one apartment was occupied, and the men who lived there are now being helped out by the Red Cross.

A neighbor says one of the men was injured when debris fell on his head.
