Schools are closed in Johnston Tuesday as the town continues to clean up after the blizzard of 2013 dumped more than 2 feet of snow in parts of the town.
Most residents have had power restored, but mountains of snow line the street after the worst storm in decades moved through the state Friday and Saturday, forcing students to miss a third straight day of class.
Around the state, communities continue to recover from the storm. Beginning Tuesday, the state is dispatching Preliminary Disaster Assessment (PDA) teams to conduct surveys throughout the state, Gov. Lincoln Chafee's office annunced Monday. Teams, comprised of federal, state, and local officials, will visit affected areas to view storm damages firsthand, assess the scope of damages, and estimate repair costs. The PDA is expected to be completed in two to three days. Based on this information, the Governor will decide whether to proceed with a formal request for federal assistance.
