Storm update
Afternoon, January 27
Here is the latest information on the ongoing blizzard. 
  • Quincy Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, January 28.
  • There will be no curbside trash collection on Wednesday, January 28. The schedule for the remainder of the week is to be determined.
  • Over a foot of snow has fallen so far, and there is potential for at least another foot through the remainder of the day Tuesday.
  • The overnight high tide caused substantial flooding in coastal areas, leading to closures of Sea Street, Quincy Shore Drive, and Soutern Artery, among others.  Neighborhood flooding was also serious, but there have been no reports at this time of any severe structural damage and there were no evacuations overnight.  Damage is being assessed.
  • Additional flooding is anticipated during the Tuesday afternoon high tide scheduled to peak at 5 p.m., and the Quincy Fire Department and the Quincy Police Department are staged to respond to flooding emergencies.
  • A State of Emergency remains in place, as does Governor Baker’s travel ban.
  • The snow-removal operation is anticipated to continue through Wednesday and into Thursday, so residents are encouraged to be patient with snow removal operations. 
  • If possible, residents should wait as long as possible to clear their driveway aprons, as plows will be operating continuously.
  • If there are widespread power failures and serious flooding, the City of Quincy will open an emergency shelter at Quincy High School.
  • For snow-related assistance, please call 617-376-1927.  For flood-related assistance,  please call 617-376-1910.  In an emergency, ALWAYS call 911.
  • Mayor Koch is asking all residents to please check in on elderly neighbors or anyone who may need assistance.
