Areas of Parsippany are reporting 14 inches of show around 12:30 p.m. Monday

•Vehicles parked on the roadway during the snowstorm prohibit plows from cleaning the roadway fully and may cause issues for emergency vehicles. Once public roadways become snow-covered, any vehicle left parked on them will be subject to being ticketed and towed. Please use public parking lots if needed.

•Never touch downed utility lines. The possibility exists that those lines are still carrying electrical current and can electrocute you. Report downed power lines to the Police Department AND JCP&L.

•Report power outages directly to JCP&L.

•If a roadway becomes obstructed by a fallen tree or branches, please contact the Parsippany Police Department at Police Non-emergencies: (973) 263-4300, and of course Emergencies: 911.
