Storm Team 4: Snow Emergency in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE - As hundreds of snow plows and salt trucks are working to take care of snowblown streets in Milwaukee before the biggest of two major snowfalls within 24 hours, people living in Milwaukee spent much of the day clearing the way from the first round.
Meanwhile, the city put a Snow Emergency into effect for the City of Milwaukee.
Those who live in the city were concerned about the second round of snow.
"Tomorrow morning, there will be a problem that's going to be bad. I just hope I can get out of my own driveway.
"The emergency declaration means please move your vehicle," said Barrett in a press conference.
From 11:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, winter parking restrictions around Milwaukee go into effect.
Cars parked in snow routes will get ticketed and towed.

"This is not an effort by the city to make money," said Barrett.
"It's an effort by the city to clear the streets. We would prefer if we didn't have to tow a single vehicle tonight, but we want to make sure those streets are clear so we can have those streets plowed."
It's estimated that tonight's cleanup could cost the city of Milwaukee $1 million.
