    WARWICK, RI — The National Weather Service reports Warwick received just under 12 inches of snow during Thursday’s blizzard, which began letting up about 6 p.m. in Kent County, but not before causing multiple crashes and more than 100 skids off-road across Rhode Island, and closing out schools and services for the week.

    Rhode Island State Police investigated 16 accidents and assisted 156 motorists – many of whom skidded off slippery roads – between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. today. No injuries were reported. They also handled 194 calls for service and assisted in 24 tows during the day, according to RI State Police.

    By 5 p.m., all lanes of Interstate 95 were open to travel. Earlier in the day, southbound lanes had been closed at various points  after tractor-trailer trucks became stuck or slid on the snow and ice, blocking travel.

    Road conditions were reportedly improving, but snow and ice continued to create dangerous conditions for travel, especially on secondary roads as the storm moved on.

    Warwick Public Schools, which shut down for the day’s storm, remain closed this morning, along with the following additional closures and delays:
