Special Nor’easter Coverage: The winter storm that shut down much of the South this week saved its most brutal punch for New England. Wetter, heavier snow than anticipated has knocked out power to an estimated 70,000 households in the state. Amid reports of cars spinning out, and disoriented drivers heading the wrong way on the highway, State officials are urging Massachusetts residents to stay off the roads. Other forms of transportation also haven’t been spared. The MBTA is reporting delays – particularly on the green line, Amtrak service between Boston and New York has been suspended and though Logan Airport is open, no flights are getting in or out. Most schools and public buildings are closed.
 
As the heavy, wet snow drags down tree limbs, we’re getting reports that 70,000 households in the state are without power. Joining us with more on that is Peter Judge, Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).
 
The snow is particularly bad in Central, Mass. As of 10am, Worcester had about 14 inches of snow (with plenty still on the way). Bob Moylan, is the Worcester Commissioner of Public Works and he checks in.

WGBH's Ralph Ranalli joins us from downtown Boston. And WCAI's Sean Corcoran calls in from Surf Drive Beach in Falmouth.

With parking bans in effect and delays on the T – many of those who are venturing out – are calling cabs. We hear from George Fiorenza, Director of Operations for Brattle Courier.

And finally Boston mayor Tom Menino checks on the heels of a conference call about the storm with the latest on the efforts to clear the roads in Boston.
