  • Schools closed, flights canceled amid storm

    PROVIDENCE (AP) — A storm expected to bring up to 10 inches of snow to northern parts of Rhode Island prompted school closings across the state and more than two dozen flight cancellations at T.F. Green Airport. All schools in this region were closed today with most announcements made Wednesday night.

    The National Weather Service’s forecast for today predicts 8 to 10 inches of snow and one-tenth of an inch of ice in northwestern Rhode Island, 4 to 8 inches of snow in the Providence and Westerly areas and 2 to 5 inches of snow in the Newport area.

    In Connecticut, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy ordered a tandem truck ban from the state’s highways, and the opening of government offices was delayed until 10 a.m. for non-essential workers. Some parts of the state expected to get up to 20 inches of snow as well as ice.

    R.I. Gov. Lincoln Chafee said state government will be in full operation, but its adverse weather policy will be in effect for shifts beginning or ending during the storm’s expected peak.

    Several communities have issued parking bans.

    Metro-North has reduced service to 75 percent of regular train runs, while Bradley International Airport is reporting more than 40 flight cancellations.

    Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating say they’re ready to restore any power outages.
