WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser says officials are still seeing a lot of people on the road and driving.

At a press conference Friday evening, Bowser asked residents and visitors to get off the roads.

“Find a safe place and stay there,” she said.

Bowser said the storm is still expected to dump at least two feet of snow in the city. She said the snow is coming down wet and heavy, which could mean downed power lines and trees.

Officials had asked residents to be where they planned to be for the storm by 3 p.m. Friday. Christopher Geldart, Director of the District of Columbia’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency says conditions are only going to deteriorate.
