A two-foot snowfall left the Town of Babylon scrambling to plow roads, but officials said they're well on their way to having streets cleared by this afternoon.
Babylon Town officials said plows first went through primary roads to make them passable for emergency vehicles and Town Supervisor Richard Schaffer urged residents to stay off the roads until at least late this afternoon.
Town Spokesman Kevin Bonner said that 90 percent of the primary roads in Babylon have been cleared. He added that all roads should have received at least a "first pass" by 3 p.m.
"If your road hasn't received a first pass by 3 p.m., please call us at 311," Bonner said. "We want to hear from you."
In Babylon Village, roads were continuously cleared throughout the night, and by 10 a.m. Saturday, most were cleared of heavy snow as plows moved on to public parking lots.
Readers on Facebook chimed in on their road's conditions.
"Good enough, I guess," said Babylon resident Sandi Wood Breuniger. "Could be better."
"We've been clear since 9 a.m.," wrote Jim Brown.
Earlier during the start of the storm, Deb Longo wrote a message of encouragement to our area's road crews.
"Way to go Skipe and crew, out sanding already!"
