THIS IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE LYNNFIELD OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT.

Snow continues to fall in Lynnfield and will continue through out the day, with blowing and drifting snow. A blizzard warning continues in effect through 1AM Wednesday. Twelve plus inches of snow has already fallen with potential accumulations totaling two feet or more. Because the snow is the light fluffy variety we have yet to experience power outages.

We are continuing to staff the emergency shelter at the Middle School 505 Main Street Lynnfield. This shelter is not able to accommodate pets.

The snow emergency remains in effect including a town wide parking ban and travel ban. Vehicles parked on the street will be towed. Please stay off the roadways. There will be no trash collection Tuesday.

Please use care if using generators, Never run a generator indoors! Exhaust from a generator produces deadly carbon monoxide; exhaust should be directed away from the building. If your furnace has a direct vent (vents out the side of the house rather than a chimney) there is the potential that this vent could become blocked by drifting snow. If safe to do so, you should check these vents to ensure they are clear.

Any utility wires on the on the ground or hanging low should be considered live and should not be touched or moved.

Public works crews have worked through the night to keep roadways open and passable for emergency vehicles.

If you are in need of assistance or need transportation to the emergency shelter, you can call 9-1-1.

Future updates on this storm will be posted as the situation develops.
