NORWICH – Emergency management officials ordered all roads in the county closed until at least noon Monday after an overnight storm dumped between 10 to 24 inches of snow across the region.
Following a 4 a.m. meeting with emergency management and highway coordinators, Board of Supervisors Chairman Richard B. Decker issued a State of Emergency for Chenango County. All Chenango County roads are closed to emergency traffic only due to the heavy snowfall and the continued blowing and drifting of snow.
Emergency Management Director Matthew Beckwith said he and Public Works Director Randy Gibbon met with the chairman this morning and advised a state of emergency until at least noon.
“At around noon, we’ll get together and do another evaluation and decide if we’re going to open up the roads or keep them closed for a few more hours,” he said.
