“It seems everyone did the right thing as far as getting their vehicles off the road,” Wlasuk said. “We've been in pretty good shape.”

As people begin to dig themselves out, Milne reminds residents not to throw snow into streets. 

The storm, dubbed "Nemo" by the Weather Channel, has dumped at least 2 feet on the region since yesterday morning. The U.S. Postal Service suspended service across New England. Both the Northshore and Liberty Tree malls remain closed for the day, in addition to countless other businesses.   

Salem also experienced minor coastal flooding during high tide last night and this morning, Giunta said. Flooding was reported on lower Bridge Street, and down by the Willows on Columbus Avenue, he said.  Beverly police said there were no major coastal flooding problems reported.
