Brooklyn digs out of winter's last blast

SHEEPSHEAD BAY - The snow stopped, but it left quite a mess in its path to keep Brooklyn residents busy digging out Saturday.

Most of the borough only saw a few inches of snow from the storm. However, Friday night?s freezing rain left streets and sidewalks covered in ice. Department of Sanitation trucks are working hard cleaning the streets to keep them safe. Drivers are urged to be careful on icy roads. Alternate side of the street parking has been suspended for Saturday due to the weather.

The storm also backed up local airports. The Port Authority says more than 1,400 flights were canceled.
