BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Clean up efforts are underway across New England, after the first heavy snow storm of the season.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation said it had more than 1,900 pieces of equipment deployed in ice and snow operations by around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
There were still a few plows driving around the state's MetroWest region by late Sunday morning, but they didn't have much work to do since the roads were almost clear by sunrise.
Snow totals were slightly less than expected. Framingham residents reported about three inches of snow, far less than the predicted six inches of snow. Around Worcester, residents got exactly what they expected; more than a foot of snow by Saturday night.
According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, central Massachusetts also appears to have reported the most power outages.
There were more than 7,000 homes and businesses without power in the Bay State late Sunday morning.
