Mayor Bowser concerned about power outages during upcoming storm

- D.C. officials are bracing for up to 2 feet of snow later this week, and preparations have begun for the worst case scenario.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said Wednesday that the city has requested Humvees from the National Guard in the event they are needed to get around the city.

Because Friday and Saturday’s storm could bring blizzard conditions, Bowser is worried most about those who might lose power.

"If this is a blizzard and we have sustained winds and people lose power, that would be my biggest concern," Bowser said. "We can move the snow. We will move the snow."

Bowser said she will activate warming shelters if the power goes out for residents.

The District is still putting together its storm plan, and we should know more after a Thursday morning news conference.
