Words of Caution for Homeowners



    (NECN: Danielle Niles, Newton, Mass.) - NECN meteorlogist Danielle Niles has been checking on the storm in Newton, Massachusetts, noting that the snow is relatively light and fluffy from this winter storm, creating blizzard conditions as high winds blow snow and reduce visibility, even in areas where the snow is not falling as hard this morning.

    The wind and snow are combining to take down wires, and drifts can cause issues for homeowners as well, as snow can block vents on oil and gas furnaces, leading to dangerous buildups of carbon monoxide.
