Blizzard Tears Through Andover, But Streets Are Quiet

The Town of Andover DPW is working hard to clear the streets but it seems residents have been staying inside.

Andover was slammed yesterday and last night with one of the largest storms in recent history and now residents are looking outside to see 20-plus inches in their backyard, and climbing.

The town's emergency and public works services are doing fine, according to Lt. John Pathiakis. Most importantly residents are staying off the roadway.

"Everyone's been following the governor's orders," said Pathiakis. It's been very quiet.

The public works crew is out clearing the streets without the distraction of civilian vehicles and the clean-up effort has been, fortunately, uneventful.

"It's been good," said Pathiakis.

National Grid is not reporting any power outages in Andover and police say that have not heard of a single outage themselves.
