    (NECN)  - New England is almost finished with a rough winter storm and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency has been working to make the roads as safe as possible.

    Peter Judge of MEMA joined NECN in a phone call to discuss what remains in the storm and the aftermath.

    He said he is concerned with the south shore and the estimated flooding with high tide around noon on Friday.

    He said the snow could have been much worse.

    Judge said, “I think we caught a big break with it being this light and fluffy snow because a major issue we usually have to deal with are extended power outages around the state.”

    He said he is concerned with the frigid temperatures and the wind chill factor.

    He said that people need to use a little common sense over Friday into Saturday in regards to being outside.

    He said that frostbite or hypothermia can onset quickly in the cold conditions.
