CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Gov. Maggie Hassan is leaving it up to New Hampshire agencies whether they should close early due to the storm.
But one thing is certain: The state-run liquor stores are shutting down at 6 p.m. Friday to encourage people to get off the roads by 7 p.m. — the time when the storm is supposed to intensify in New Hampshire.
Hassan said agency heads will discuss with their staff when is the best time to leave but she told them to be liberal in letting people get out ahead of the storm. She said that might mean letting people driving on or to the Seacoast go earlier where the storm is expected to be heaviest.
