CLEVELAND-- City officials provided an update on snow removal efforts in Cleveland Monday morning.

Chief of Operations Darnell Brown said parts of the city saw anywhere from 6 inches to 18 inches of snow. The southeast side was the hardest hit.

"The morning commute was obviously a challenge for everyone," Brown said.

Crews in Cleveland will continue to work 12-hour shifts until further notice. There are currently 69 snow-removal units, including eight road graders, clearing the streets. At noon, those workers will transition to residential streets.

Starting at 3 p.m., the city will deploy 74 units.

A snow parking ban is also in effect for the city of Cleveland.

"Moving vehicles helps us clear the streets curb to curb," Brown said.
