Blizzard bringing much of region to standstill

(Continued)

A total of 2,000 utility teams were in place, though work repairing downed wires was not expected to begin until the storm is over, according to Patrick and Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Richard Sullivan.

“Prepare for the possibility of being shut in and at home for the next 24 or 48 hours,” Patrick advised this afternoon. He said drifts could grow to 5 feet and while saying he understood the desire for some exploring once the storm subsided, he asked people do so safely. “There are hazards under this winter wonderland,” he said.

Patrick advised people with generators to make sure to vent them, people with wells to fill their bathtubs with water and everyone to turn up the cooling devices on their refrigerators.
