Snow piles up in N.H. as Nashua declares snow emergency

NASHUA, N.H (WHDH) - While Boston saw little snow accumulation, heavy snow piled up in New Hampshire on Thursday.

The city of Nashua declared a snow emergency, effective Thursday night at 10 p.m. until 10:00 p.m Friday. Officials said the snow emergency may be adjusted if weather conditions change.

Plows had a hard time keeping up as snow continued to fall into the night. While plows worked to keep the main roads clear, side roads were barely passable. Officials urged drivers to stay off the roads but some had to venture out.

“It’s never fun dealing with but it is nothing we are not used to,” said one man cleaning off his car after getting out of work.

Residents should expect snow totals to be between 5 and 9 inches. Power outages could also be expected due to heavy, wet snow and wind speeds that could reach up to 50 miles per hour.

People in the Nashua area are being asked to stay off the roads so plows can get through. An overnight parking ban is now in effect in Milford, where at least 6 inches of snow has fallen.
