"We are arranging emergency camps in National Parks, buses and other places," Mayor Craig Sanderson announced. "We are also actively working with the County Emergency Response Agency, the Arizona Department of Transportation and National Parks with the primary goal of cleaning the streets."

By the afternoon of November 29, more than 1,000 people and tourists were still trapped in Tusayan and the snow did not stop falling. Heavy snowfall in states like Colorado, Utah, Arizona caused a series of flights to be canceled or delayed. The National Meteorological Agency forecast the weather could warm up on the morning of December 1.
