Patrick Mobilizes National Guard For Storm

(Boston, MA) –  Governor Patrick has ordered state government offices closed today on account of the snowstorm.  He’s encouraging employers statewide to give workers the day off so they can stay off the roads.  Most colleges, schools and universities are shut.  Logan Airport remains closed and is expected to resume operations around noon.  Roads near the shore may be inaccessible due to flooding, especially during high tide.  Governor Patrick has mobilized the Massachusetts National Guard to support state and local storm response efforts.

As the snow piles up in the Northeast, so do the flight cancellations. More than 21-hundred flights were canceled Thursday due to the heavy snow and brutal cold affecting the region. The storm first hit the Midwest, resulting in more than 300 flights canceled at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Boston’s Logan International Airport also shut down Thursday night and isn’t expected to back in business until at least noon today.
