The emergency goes into effect Thursday at 5 p.m. and will remain in place until Friday at 5 p.m.
That means two things:
1. If you live on one of the city's snow emergency routes -- Easton has them in all four neighborhoods -- you need to move your car.
2. Once you move it, you can keep your car in the city's parking garage, for free, until 6 p.m. Friday.
You can find a copy of the emergency routes on the city website.
