The city of Utica has declared a snow emergency which will go into effect at 11 p.m. Thursday and will remain in effect until further notice.

All vehicles must be off the streets by 11 p.m. to allow plows to remove snow. The snow emergency applies to all city streets and roadways, with no exceptions. City officials say overnight parking permits are not applicable during a snow emergency.

Reps with the National Grid shared tips for staying safe during the snowstorm:

-Never touch a downed power line.
-Always make sure to keep flashlights handy.
-Charge your phone to 100 percent before bed, in case you lose power overnight.
--If you are going to use a generator, make sure you disconnect from national grid's system by shutting off the main breaker. Doing this will keep National Grid crews safe.

National grid wants customers to know that tree limbs could take down wires during the storm.
And if the snow is heavy enough, you'll likely see the power lines droop or even break.

“We are certainly urging our customers to look at safety precautions,” said National Grid spokesperson Virginia Limmiatis. “Bring items into their house that could be a hazard in the heavy expected wind event and wintery mix. We are asking customers to certainly look at their generators as a possibility if there are those outages. Make sure those generators are operated outside only”.

If a power outage occurs you can call your power company. National grid's number is 1-800-867-5222.
