Schools, trains halted as Massachusetts digs out from record storm

BOSTON (Reuters) – Schools and most public transit systems remained closed around Boston on Tuesday as eastern Massachusetts dug out from its third major winter storm in two weeks.

Officials warned that buildings with flat roofs were at risk of collapsing after a three-day storm dropped about two feet (60 cm) across the region and a suburban school district north of Boston canceled all classes for the rest of the week to allow crews to clear roofs.

Boston-area transit, schools to shut Tuesday after record snowfall

BOSTON (Reuters) – A record-setting run of snowstorms that has pounded the U.S. Northeast over the past two weeks has taken a heavy toll on Massachusetts, prompting officials to shut Boston’s mass-transit service through Tuesday to allow time to clear the rails.

Following a day that saw 48 commuters stuck on a snowbound train during the morning rush hour, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said all train service would shut down at 7 p.m. EST (2400 GMT) on Monday due to the snow and remain shut on Tuesday.

New England shows strains after two weeks of heavy snowfall

BOSTON, Feb 9 (Reuters) – A record-setting run of snowstorms
that has pounded the U.S. Northeast over the past two weeks has
taken a heavy toll on Massachusetts, taxing supplies of salt to
keep roads clear and leaving authorities running out of places
to pile the snow.

Boston’s transit system said it would shut down at 7 p.m.
EST (2400 GMT) on Monday due to the prolonged heavy snowfall and
the city’s mayor canceled school on Tuesday after officials said
73.9 inches (1.9 meters) of snow had fallen on the city so far
this season, making it the 10th snowiest winter on record.
