Stores like Panera Bread on Providence Highway are closing shop. But it's not just because of the storm, it's also due to the vehicle ban that was issued earlier today.

MEMA announced the decision on its Facebook page.
The statewide driving ban will be lifted as of 4 p.m., the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency posted on its Facebook page. The driving ban was lifted at 1 p.m. for Nantucket and for all communities west of I-91. Residents across the entire state are free to drive after 4. MEMA officials had asked community members to stop calling 911 and their local public safety departments about this topic.
