BOSTON, MARCH 13, 2018......Clad in a purple sweater, Gov. Charlie Baker and transportation officials said at midday Tuesday that there have been no major flooding or traffic problems associated with the nor'easter that has enveloped Massachusetts, but tens of thousands of residents are in cold homes without power and Baker cautioned that the storm is far from over.

"This storm is still getting -- I wouldn't call it still getting going, but there is still a lot of time left in this storm," Baker said from the Department of Transportation Highway Operations Center in South Boston. He said the heavy snow that fell in some areas Tuesday morning is expected to continue to "fall about one to three inches per hour for most of the rest of today, ending later this afternoon."

Just after the governor's press conference ended, the National Weather Service announced that the conditions in Boston had officially earned the blizzard designation. The NWS reported 6 inches of snow in Somerville, 6.5 inches in Framingham and 8.5 inches in Milford as of 11 a.m. Tuesday.
