DANVILLE (WSLS 10) - Snow cleanup continued Monday in Southside where the snow totals were the highest in our viewing area.

In Danville, the public works department removed snow that had piled up as roads were plowed over the weekend.

The biggest concern though was ice.

Public Works Director Rick Drazenovich said a crew will be out overnight looking for areas that need sand put down.

"Primaries are clean and dry and we've plowed and sanded all the residential," Drazenovich explained. "In the morning, we have two trucks in each of the five zones and they'll just drive through the zone and sand where they see that it re-froze."

Danville Public Schools were closed Monday due to the ice and snow on the roads. Danville public schools will also be closed on Tuesday due to inclement weather.
