KEARNY, N.J. - The latest winter storm to hit the East is gone, but not forgotten.
It left 15 inches of snow in Kearny, where more snow has fallen over the past two weeks than normally does in an entire winter. Crews are running out of places to put it.
The snow is heavy, wet and exhausting
to move. Steven Laray's SUV has been buried for three days. What is he doing with the snow?
Icy roads narrowed by mounds of snow made driving dangerous. Thirty people were hurt in the series of accidents that shut down the Pennsylvania turnpike on Friday. Heather Pasco's car was hit by a truck.
"I looked in my rearview mirror,
I saw him and I thought I was done," she said. "I mean, I thought I
was done. The entire back end of my car is gone."
Public Works Superintendent Gerry Kerr showed us what's left of his salt supply. If there were another big storm, would Kearny be in trouble?
"Yes, a lot of trouble,"
Kerr said. "We would have to actually physically close streets for the
safety of the general public."
Eight inches of snow could fall in portions of the Northeast Saturday. Temperatures next week could hit the 50s possibly melting some the snow.
