(NECN: Peter Howe, Newton, Mass.) - A giant tree went down in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts this morning, causing a total closure of Route 9 Westbound. The roadway has since reopened.
Also, on Lake Street in Brighton, Massachusetts, a tree went all the way across the road.
Officials are urging all residents to stay off the roads, whenever possible, to allow plows to do their jobs.
