ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- The snow stopped falling more than 24 hours ago, but people still need to take it easy out there.

The emergency operation command stressed that at an afternoon meeting with reporters.

Mayor Francis Slay said the process of clearing roads is slow, and Tuesday’s morning commute is expected to be difficult.

Also, shelters and warming centers are seeing a surge of people. So they're expanding the facilities so no one will be turned away.

And St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson says they're getting a lot more calls. Jenkerson also expects to see an increase in CO cases.

He warns people to watch for the warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, nausea, light headedness and headaches.
