NH Seacoast braces for another possible winter wallop


PORTSMOUTH - With just a few more inches of snow in the forecast, people on the Seacoast were preparing to get hit with another round of snow Wednesday night into Thursday.

With 6 to 10 inches expected, it won't be record-breaking snowfall, but it will cause issues on top of what has already piled up.

As a precaution, several crews have been out clearing off roofs.

Fire Chief Steven Achilles told NH1 News that some buildings have as much as 6-foot snowdrifts on them.

"This is unprecedented. I've never had as many roof collapse calls before," Achillies said.

With more snow on the way their biggest concern is apartment buildings with flat roofs and structures built before the 1970s that do not have as much support.

Officials encourage people to clean off their roofs between storms to prevent issues in the future.

"A lot of these place will see 4-6 inches, and that's all they need to put it over the edge," Achillies said.
