Blizzard hits Bristol County

Snow and wind are continuing to hit Bristol county, but conditions have improved over the past couple of hours.

When the wind does come through it is whipping the snow making it difficult to see.

As of noon NSTAR reports 12 customers in New Bedford without power and 1 in Fairhaven.

Plows have been out throughout the night and morning but roads are still snow covered.

Drivers are being urged to stay off of the roads. If you do go out New Bedford’s mayor asking drivers to be on the lookout for children who may be playing.

Schools and city offices in New Bedford are closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
