Winter Storm Linus is making it very hard and possibly hazardous drive, one that state police are stating you should avoid if you can. Not worth risking driving in these conditions if you do not have to.
A few accidents have occurred and reports of vehicles that went off the streets on I-91, I-291 and I-391, including those in Western Mass, where spinouts have occurred with minor injuries.
The Mass State Police Twitter account is being updated regularly, the last tweet was 10 minutes ago saying, “Some parts of MA seeing blizzard conditions, 1 inch per hour snowfall. Translates into hazardous driving conditions. Use extra caution.”
Motorists are being urged to slow down and leave a lot of extra time if you are travelling from Tobin Bridge decks & I-93 from Dorchester to Somervile because snow is covering them.
Another crash happened on the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) in Sturbridge, the Pike speeds have now been dropped from 65 mph to 40 mph from the New York state line to Boston. One Mass State Police tweet said patrols in Metro Boston are reporting deteriorating road conditions, the roads are open still, but there have been a few spin outs and crashes.
The Daily Mail reports that over 2,000 U.S. flights have been cancelled yesterday, with 1,000 being scratched for Monday.
