CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire emergency management officials are encouraging residents to limit their travel when the state gets hit by a major winter storm Friday.
Perry Plummer of the Homeland Security and Emergency Management Department says there’s still uncertainty about the storm’s exact track. But he said it seems certain that New Hampshire will get heavy snowfall.
He said there may also be high wind gusts that could cause scattered power outages. Utilities said they were securing additional crews to help with power problems, especially in the Seacoast and southeast areas of the state, where the brunt of the storm is expected.
Plummer encouraged people to stock up on emergency supplies, monitor weather reports and check on the well-being of relatives and neighbors, especially the elderly.
