Baker Warns Of Possible Power Outages

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is telling residents to prepare for power outages and difficult travel conditions as a blockbuster blizzard bears down on the state.

Baker said in a statement "that people across Massachusetts should presume that roads on Tuesday, and possibly Wednesday, will be very hard, if not impossible, to navigate, that power outages are a distinct possibility, and that most forms of public transportation may not be available."

Anywhere from a foot to two feet of snow, with winds gusting up to 65 miles per hour, is expected in the Boston area, with higher snowfall amounts possible outside of the city.

There's also the possibility of coastal flooding.

Baker says the worst of the storm is expected from about midnight Monday to about mid-day Tuesday.
