Mass. Governor to Tour Areas Hard Hit by Blizzard



    Thousands remained without power Monday, hundreds seek shelter (Published Friday, Jan. 17, 2014)

    BOSTON (AP) - Commuters heading back to work in Massachusetts for the first time since the blizzard are being urged to use caution and allow extra time.
    Many secondary roads still have a thick coating of snow, and high snow banks that block sight lines make turning and merging hazardous. Parking spots are filled with snow and many two lane roads are down to one lane.
    State officials are urging commuters to take public transportation when possible. The MBTA's regularly scheduled service resumed today, but some trolley and commuter rail lines have been experiencing 15 to 20 minute delays because of signal problems and weather-related issues.
    Schools in Boston and many other communities remain closed.
    About 110,000 Massachusetts electric customers remain without power, mostly on the South Shore and Cape Cod.
