Revere fares well following latest winter blast
By Sara Brown
D
espi te the gale - force
wi nds and threat of
bl izzard-predicted snow
amount forecast, Revere
hand l ed Tuesday ’s on -
slaught very well, accord-
ing to Mayor Br ian Arr i -
go. “Overall, things went
smoothly during the storm,”
Arrigo said.
During the height of the
storm on Tuesday af ter-
noon into early evening,
rates of over two inches
of snow and rain per hour
were being reported with
reduced visibilities of less
than ¼ mile. According to
the National Weather Ser-
vice, much of Greater Bos-
ton fared very well when
the snow turned to rain
by late afternoon. Logan
Airport reported only 6.6
inches of snow with high
winds hitting around 60-
plus miles per hour.
The school department
cancelled school on both
Tuesday and Wednesday.
City Hall was closed, and
a parking ban was in place
most of the day on Tuesday.
“DPW crews did a good
job keeping the st reets
clear, and residents were
largely cooperative with
the request to stay off the
roads,” Arrigo said. “Only
13 cars were towed during
the parking ban, which is a
testament to the residents’
cooperation – for which we
are very appreciative.”
Dur ing the last major
storm in February, 18 cars
were towed, so the de -
crease was a sign of im-
provement and that the city
constantly updating their
social media with the lat-
est information was work-
ing. “We’ve worked hard to
be as clear as possible in
communicating informa-
tion about parking bans to
the public, and we’re glad
to see those efforts paying
off,” Arrigo said.
App r ox ima t e l y 1 , 100
Revere customers expe -
r i enced power outages
at some point due to the
storm. Some customers
were still without power on
Wednesday.
“Some parts of the city ex-
perienced power outages
during the storm. Our team
was in constant communi-
cation with National Grid,
ensuring that work was on-
going to restore service as
quickly as possible,” Arrigo
said. “Let’s hope this is our
last storm for this year.”
Imagine, with this week-
end’s expected forecasts of
flurries and continued win-
ter weather, it’s hard to be-
lieve spring is only a week
away.
