Rhode Island Emergency Management officials are urging residents to help friends and neighbors dig out after the third snow storm in as many weeks.

State Emergency Management Director Peter Gaynor said everyone needs to pitch to help the state’s most vulnerable residents. "So the elderly, the very young and pets. They don’t have the ability to stand up to really cold temperatures or wind so keep an eye on your neighbor or your parents or your loved ones and make sure that they’re safe during these next couple days."

Gaynor said crews have been working around the clock to clear roads, and they have enough salt to treat roads for now. He’s expecting more salt shipments to arrive later this week.
