Heavy Snow Continues, Outages Increasing

We’ve been getting a number of reports of huge snowflakes and heavy snowfall…even some thunder snow here in Southeast New England.

Snow is piling up quickly across the region and we’re still expecting large accumulations, especially in northwest Rhode Island.  Where there is 4″ or more of snow, trees, branches and power lines may start to snap. In fact, on Facebook, we got a report of “branches snapping steady and lights flickering on and off here in West Greenwich.”

The number of power outages jumped in just a few minutes from 900 to more than 2,000 around 8:30PM.  These numbers, unfortunately, will likely grow through the night.


Here’s what we are looking at in terms of accumulations:
