Rhode Island officials are warning drivers to stay off the road and if they need to travel they are urged to use caution.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation currently has 350 plow trucks on the road. They are warning motorists of whiteout conditions.

The Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency says that plows are operating on a two hour loop in the area instead of the typical four hour loop they typically operate on because the snow is falling heavily.
