Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Missoula City crews called in extra staff to help run 24-hour snow plow shifts through the weekend to battle the blizzard.

A group of city staff are returning calls to the Streets Division.

Sheriff's officials said they've gotten more than 50 reports of accidents in the county over the past 24 hours.

City leaders encourages people to stay home, but if you have to travel, dress warmly.

Plows are working on high-traffic streets first, and other crews are working on clearing sidewalks and paths to bus routes.

They've also assigned one plow to clear roads for emergency responders.

Mountain Line buses have extended their free fares for all routes through Saturday.

Call the Streets Division at 552-6360 if your street is blocked with snow.
