Thousands Are Still Stranded by Snowstorm

March 22, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

As many as 75,000 people were still stranded in their homes following the state's worst snowstorm in 90 years.

Officials in Jefferson County west of Denver declared a state of emergency and requested crews, plows and snowmobiles from the governor's office to help clear the snow and helicopters to reach people in case of medical emergencies.

The storm, which began Tuesday, dropped up to 8 1/2 feet of snow over a swath of nearly 500 miles in Colorado and Wyoming.
