SOUTH BEND, Ind. People have been calling our newsroom all weekend saying they can't get anywhere because their streets haven't been plowed.

Folks living on Roosevelt Street in South Bend say a plow hasn't cleared their road all week.

One man says he helped nine people who got stuck trying to drive down the street yesterday.

People living in the neighborhood say it's a huge safety concern because several residents have major health issues, and emergency workers can't even make it down the road.

“We have about two, two and a half inches thick of slush, ice that if they would have done it, I would have not helped out a South Bend Police Department get unstuck,” explained David Smith. “Yesterday, I had to help a county mount who did a 360-degree spin get out.”
Residents say they've called 311 for help but haven't had any success with getting a plow to come down Roosevelt.

We also received several calls and emails from people in St. Joseph County and Elkhart County saying they couldn't get out of their neighborhoods because they weren't plowed.
