Hannibal Street Supervisor Jim Hoskinn said his crews' main priority was clearing the streets, but they would help free cars in emergency situations.
"But I mean if you see somebody stranded and they've got kids with them, you're going to stop and help them, but you've got to get the streets open first for Fire, Police, and Ambulance."
As Brian Selander dug out his car outside the Best Western with some help, he said the best thing people can do is come together and lend out a hand.
"Oh I feel bad for the ones who were driving yesterday. I think I counted about 60 cars on the side of the road that were either stuck or abandoned and walked away and I helped a couple people out and they helped me. It makes you feel like you're not alone. There isn't as much traffic as normal because they're all dealing with the same thing you are," he said.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says if your car is stuck in a ditch or ran off the shoulder, dial *55 for assistance.
