Brooklyn residents face task of digging out from heavy snowfall
Many residents in Brooklyn are faced with shoveling out from under the winter storm of 2006.
Meteorologists are calling it the second biggest snowstorm in New York City. In some areas of the borough the blizzard brought gusty winds and thunder. Officials advised everyone to stay indoors, but some residents say they had places to be.
Other residents say they saw the storm as an opportunity to make some extra money. Some teens were charging up to $25 dollars to shovel snow in the neighborhood.
The Department of Sanitation says more than 400 plows were sent to clean snow off local streets. For Monday?s rush hour, city officials are recommending public transportation.
