BOSTON (AP) - Boston Mayor Martin Walsh says the city is poised to handle the massive blizzard expected to strike the region, but he’s asking for the public’s help.

Walsh said Monday a snow emergency would take effect at 6 p.m. and cars parked on major city roadways will be towed starting at 8 p.m. Public schools will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Gov. Charlie Baker has ordered a ban on non-essential motor vehicle travel starting at midnight and the MBTA also plans to suspend service at that time.

The city will have about 800 pieces of equipment on the road clearing major roads.

The Boston Public Health Commission says homeless shelters that normally operate at night will be kept open during the day on Tuesday and efforts will be made to get the homeless to safety.
