How do I know if Hopkins has declared a snow emergency?

Call the snow line at 952-939-1399. Though local media including KSTP-TV and WCCO-TV are notified of a Hopkins’ snow emergency, the stations do not guarantee the announcement will be broadcast. Also note that snow depths are measured in Hopkins and may not coincide with the snow depths reported at the Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport.

The City also intends to send out notification messages about snow emergencies using Rave Mobile Safety. If you want to receive notifications, register your information on the Emergency Notifications page.
