Bloomberg says all NYC streets to be cleared Saturday

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says all city streets will be cleared of snow by the end of Saturday.

Bloomberg says the city is "in great shape" after the overnight snowstorm.

The National Weather Service says 11.4 inches of snow fell in Central Park by 8 a.m. Saturday. Some spots on eastern Long Island got as much as 30 inches.

Bloomberg said New York City can offer equipment and manpower if other communities need help with snow removal.

Bloomberg gave a briefing at a sanitation garage in Queens. He said the Sanitation Department has deployed 2,200 pieces of equipment and will have every street plowed by the end of the day.

He said the city "dodged a bullet" with this storm but winter's not over.
