MASON CITY – Might be best to get your cars off the streets while city crews clear the latest snowfall.

Around 7:45 AM Monday morning, a Mason City snowplow and sand truck sideswiped two parked vehicles on South Vermont Avenue.

With the prediction of two to four inches of snow, Mason City snowplows were out early Monday morning. One truck was southbound on South Vermont when he sideswiped two parked cars.

“It’s blizzard like conditions out here,” said one Cerro Gordo Sheriff’s Deputy, that was at the scene.

Chuck Kraft, of 25 S. Vermont, an owner of at least one of the vehicles, said, “It wouldn’t have been so bad if it were my old van, but it got my wife, Dixie’s car.”

No damage to the snowplow. The Alternate Side Parking Ordinance and Emergency Snow Route will go into effect at 4:00 p.m. today in Mason City.

A Cerro Gordo County Sheriff's Deputy takes information from city employees Monday morning.
