BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is asking residents to stay inside and off the roads and be patient as officials clear record-breaking amounts of snow from the city’s streets.

Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference Sunday that with two and a half feet of snow, it will take time for the city to clear roadways. She urged residents to stay indoors and off the roads, unless they travel on foot.

Rawlings-Blake said, “This is a historic snow event. We’ve never had this much snow,” adding that she will make a determination as to whether government offices will open Monday later in the day.

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said officers received 141 calls for service on Saturday and 224 on Friday, and responded to 102 traffic accidents in the last 48 hours.
