Advisory

Danvers Police advises residents to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary during the storm.

Forecasts are predicting white out conditions with very poor visibility, coupled with high wind and possible coastal flooding making for treacherous road conditions which can cause drivers to become disoriented and drive off of the roadways.

A parking ban is in effect starting at 1 am Saturday, February 9th. Parking in municipal public lots is available for those residents without off-street parking.

There is potential for extended power outages in the area. As the storm progresses, the town will evaluate the need to establish an emergency shelter.
