they're one of the wall street banks that triggered the financial meltdown -- goldman sachs. just settled with authorities for their part in the crisis that put seven million out of work and millions out of their homes. how does wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. our economy works for wall

like from overhead standpoint. we will go in close to southern new england here and heavy bands, deeper blues what you're looking for and metrowest area seeing steady snow now and heavy snow deeper blues and some of the bands set up northwest of that original one, fitting over the cape cod canal much of this morning, where some of the heavier snow totals coming from it locks like but northern extent continues to creep off to the northwest and see how far it makes it. we are being make way into worcester county, and southern new hampshire and showing you some of the great pictures coming in of the snow coming down all morning long. there's good inch in rockland and beautiful picture from
pushing into new hampshire and western massachusetts noon time through the lunch hour and going to start to wheel on out of here, connection between one offshore and one to the west and snow going off to the west as it continues out and storm wheeling by to the south tomorrow will help to keep the northeastern wind going and enhance the snowfall on south shore. still expect eight to 12 inches on south shore, especially shawn bandying down to the upper cape and show glop and he smushing it is going to smush down and away from the center of the storm but solid six to eight inches, looks good for boston five to seven in city of worcester to lowell and northward to nashua, new hampshire, and cuts off from there. so the wind are other part of the problem. how strong they are blowing and talking single number wind chills to go along with the heavy snow out there and fact of the wind itself just biting.
tropical storm strength. >> jason: it has sustained winds 20 to 30 miles per hour and gusts 50 miles per hour and higher terrain inland and lit up with pinks and reds and blues, blizzard warning, plymouth county to the southeast and north shore and boston and look at visibility really now dropping rapidly anywhere from the south and east all the way up now into boston and norwood and visibilities low, that's where we have a blizzard warning for whiteout conditions and nantucket and vineyard and lowell 10-10 and leominster 10:40 snow moving in and steady

weakened tree limb or tree itself, that perhaps didn't fall during the storm, could come down now and that's what we saw even overnight last night. >> gene: want to remind people if there are downed power lines in your area, call into eversource because you don't want anybody near the lines. >> two biggest safety tips we give first and foremost, stay away and report to 911, don't know if the lines were down. also anybody that has portable generators, it is the only way to ensure the safety not only the resident but neighbors and workers. >> gene: thank you for keeping us up-to-date. >> thank you. >> sara: serious concern for flooding in next few hours. we want to check in with
who's covering the storm. what are you seeing where you are, stephanie? >> stephanie: further inland pushing it horizontal and biting and take a look, old snow from the last storm and see the fresh coating right here just to give you an idea. wind blowing heavily, it is a little hard to see the accumulation, but about an inch so far. taking look at road, you can actually see the snow going to coat the roads, and that has become an issue, and i did just check in with police, we are here inside the police department. so far no issues here right now so that's good and keeping an eye on road conditions as the storm continues to ramp up, but i want to have my photographer zoom into very tall trees there, and see the wind really pushing
again, we have been talking about the winds and very heavy gusts. that continues to be a very big concern here. so far no outages to report. but again, flooding, and expecting moderate flooding and expect staff on hand just in case that happens, but again, i have to tell you all of that snow, all of that wind making visibility not great day to be outdoors, we will continue to check in with the town to see how they are handling the flooding and other issues that we are already seeing and have another live report for you later on. in scituate i'm it can, -- news. >> sara: michael henrich has been standing by all morning and seen the water level rise there several feet in past two hours,
>> michael: increasing water level here and sea wall and give you perspective and 7:30 and then faded into what we shot at 8:30. dramatic difference in visibility and water level rising sooner than high tide normally would rise and, of course, the violence of those waves as well and wind gusts and 50 miles per hour earlier this morning, they were waving satellite truck around too much that we couldn't get steady signal and move somewhere and several plymouth residents come by to tell us you have to go check out long beach. apparently over there about mile
over the sea wall and break down the truck as soon as we can to get tried for you and news app and myfoxboston.com and plymouth and continue to keep an eye on it. reporting live, i'm michael henrich, fox25 news. >> gene: make sure phone is charged and downloaded fox25 weather app. that way even if you lose power watch us live and get information you need. fox25 weather and news app are free for downloading for android and apple devices. >> sara: two people killed by falling tree limb. six-year-old kalie kenyon struck by ice covered branch on friday about nine hours later 48-year-old tom gunning hit by limb by clearing off the

and now at >> kevin: rolling around huge storm producing strong wind and many reports of coastal flooding in progress. high tide around 11:00 and strong winds pounding and scituate and marshfield and another part of the storm that we are tracking all morning long. >> sara: lower gas prices also meant lower fuel prices for airlines and customers are also seeing other changes. >> daniel: filling up at the pump haven't been low in a long time and low gas prices having major impact on travel. active travel says pride of crude oil led to air carriers
>> trip under $250. >> round trip flight to chicago to boston and few years ago the same nonstop route would average nearly 300 to $400. >> i think you should be flexible with your days and a lot of websites finding the best price. >> her colleague didn't have the same luck. he booked flight st. louis to logan to nearly $600. >> matter of supply and demand. >> daniel: airfares are lower today than they were in 2004. last time fuel prices were this low and down 5% in 2015, still dramatic says with oil prices down more than 50%, the savings should be more. >> delta made $4.5 billion last
year before and due to field reduction. >> daniel: free inflight snacks and entertainment and jetblue plans to add free gate to date high speed internet and usb ports and saving more especially when discount airlines are in the destination. daniel miller, fox25 news. >> julie: 9:47 and issue we have is visible ut, which is not volume, typical
problem on typical weekday community and traffic camera are snowed out and that's what you will encounter if you head out on the roads right now. otherwise route 193 south, pike moving along fine but try to stay off them if you cab and slow spots i can find are approaching 128 with 132 miles per hour.
the braintree split to the pike and 21 minutes on 93 south connector. kevin lemanowicz in with us this morning and beginning what will stay with us for most of the day. >> with us all day long and into the nighttime hours and storm so far off and producing heavy snow in southeastern massachusetts. we have seen the band set up shop along southern plymouth county, buzzards bay coastline into the upper cape and place that endsum being the heaviest snow totals before all said and done and bottom line heavy snow across at south shore and upper cape and boston points westward moderate snowstorm and end up being less where heavy bands across the south shore and had them already and deeper blue and southern plymouth county and
few inches already and extends northward through boston, mass pike out to worcester snowing, snowing now in southern new hampshire as well, dracut seeing snow, essex seeing snow in cape ann, so everybody getting into the act as expected and 11:30 it will be snowing steadily and fairly heavily all across the area from new hampshire to cape cod and there will be some heavy banding inland as well, but clearly heavy focus will be south shore and cape cod, even as storm wheels away, last of the snow connected today west and move off to the north with it, another system will spin by to the south tomorrow and sure looks like it is going to be far enough south it will not be impact for us. however, bands of snow on south shore and enhancement from the ocean effect, add up eight to 12 inches on south shore and spots around the canal more than a foot judging by band of foot
and less back to the north of 495 closest center of the storm later start on the snow today, but boston to worcester and five to eight inch band right along the mass pike, jason, comes with very strong winds. >> jason: you bet. winds blowing around causing whiteout conditions in some spots, blizzard warning for plymouth county points south and eastward, boston camera rate now where snow moved in and set up shop. getting used to that for the rest of the day today. check out visibility blowing snow around quarter of mile vineyard plymouth, provincetown, over to chatham to nantucket and norwood and boston and beverly, visibility coming down, so looking better to the north and west but even as we speak talk about the snow closing in and all covered up here before the lunch hour so winds gusting 35 to 45 miles per hour, highest 50 at nantucket right no you, above 50 in spots already and continue
and winds piling up seas, 16, 19 feet along the coastline, so no surprise we have coastal flood concerns and barnstable county and gusting 60 to 65 miles per hour and potentially causing moderate flooding and north shore and down toward the vineyard. let's look at how we go from here, glacier conditions wrap up as winds subside a little bit but won't be really until tomorrow morning when wake up and winds are a lot more tolerable and couple of those leftover there's seven day and leave that mention of snow off and on and this had and friday and arctic front and knock temperatures down thursday night, going down to 9 and going to be a cold valentine weekend coming up. >> gene: look at these pictures that the police department posted on facebook.
