NORMAN, Oklahoma -

As heavy snow continues to impact the metro, those with the City of Norman said they’re continuing to clear their streets.

Though crews are working around the clock trying to salt and plow these roads, several drivers could be seen stuck on the roads on Sunday and Monday.

Those with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office said they’ve got deputies on hand to help those who get stranded.

“If you do have to get out on these roads, let someone know that you’re leaving,” said Cleveland County Sheriff Todd Bussell. “An estimated time of where you’re going.”

Norman city leader said they’re also continuing to treat bridges, overpasses and their primary snow routes.

“This is really a team effort, all around,” said Annahlyse Meyer with the City of Norman.

It’s not only those on the roads who have been impacted. The University of Oklahoma had multiple buildings without power for several hours on Sunday, including several of their dorms.

“Woke me up when everything just shut off,” said Noah Stilwell, an OU student.

“Without power we saw a maintenance guy trying to open up the elevator because I think someone was stuck in it,” Josaia Galdean, an OU student, said.

School officials said they were able to bring back power to student housing and other parts of campus Sunday night.
