PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Ahead of the impending storm that's predicted to drop somewhere between 8-14 inches of snow, Governor Raimondo announced that state offices will be closed on Tuesday.
"I urge Rhode Islanders to prepare for a major winter storm tomorrow, and to stay off the roads to allow plow crews and emergency response personnel to do their jobs during tomorrow's snow storm," Raimondo said. "Heavy snowfall and high winds are forecast for the morning commute, with the storm continuing throughout the day. Stay home tomorrow if possible, and please remember to check in on family members, friends and neighbors who may need assistance."
Authorities at Providence Emergency Management Agency noted however, that City Hall will remain open, but with limited staff.
