Ponds & slush refreeze overnight, cars stuck on side streets

Local News
It’s a sound Siouxlanders know all too well…trying to break the ice. 
 
One man faces the same fate many Siouxlanders do after Monday’s ice storm.
 
Freezing rain, rain, and sleet left roads slick around Siouxland on Monday, but as temperatures plummeted into the low 20’s overnight, all the ponds and slush froze over.
 
That left some Sioux City residents with thick, dangerous ice cover on roads and sidewalks Tuesday…cars stuck in the ice, scrapers going.
 
“Mother Nature, we just have to deal with what she gives us” says Ed Pickens, Field Services Director, Sioux City.
 
Salt trucks have priority one and two roads clear, now they’re left with getting to these icy side streets.
 
“I hoping we could get to whatever was missed, and also have the sun help us out…We were working around the clock, we’re still working around the clock until everything is taken care of” says Ed Pickens, Field Services Director, Sioux City.
 
If your street needs salting, you can put in a request with the street division team.
 
40’s and sunshine should also do the trick the next two days!
