波士頓市長馬丁華殊(Martin Walsh)昨(廿八)日宣佈,風雪停車禁令,下午五點後取消,一月廿九日,學校停課。

馬丁華殊感謝市民的耐心,在風雪期間和市府工作人員合作。但他強調,要讓全市恢復正常,還有很多工作要做,現在最重要的就是鏟雪。他鼓勵市民清掃人行道,消防栓,下水道,也要幫助鄰居耆英。

MAYOR WALSH ANNOUNCES PARKING BAN WILL END AT 5 P.M., URGES RESIDENTS TO HELP WITH CLEARING SIDEWALKS 

BOSTON - Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced today that the City of Boston's parking ban will end today, Wednesday, January 28, at 5 p.m. All resident cars must be moved out of private lots and garages by 7 p.m. 

The Winter Storm that impacted Boston from Monday through Wednesday was historic. The National Weather Service has reported 24.6 inches of total snowfall, with measurements in some parts of the City as high as 31 inches. It was the sixth biggest snow storm in Boston’s history, and it’s the biggest storm on record in the month of January. 

“I thank our residents for their patience, support and cooperation as we dig out from this storm,” said Mayor Walsh. “We are still in the snow removal and operational recovery phase of this event. There’s a lot of work left to do, and right now removing snow is an all hands on deck effort from the City. We continue to need everyone’s caution and cooperation as we clear our sidewalks and roads to get Boston up and running again.”

The Mayor urged residents to clear sidewalks, fire hydrants and catch basins, and help elderly and housebound neighbors. 

An announcement on if Boston Public Schools will be open on Thursday will be made Wednesday evening after assessing the Public Works Department's (PWD) progress in clearing roads and removing large piles of snow, and how clear sidewalks are. 

Information on the storm and clean-up will continued to be updated on boston.gov/snow
