CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A powerful coastal snowstorm has headed into New Hampshire amid a state of emergency that shut down government.

The storm is forecast to bring anywhere from 6 inches of snow in the North Country to 2 feet along the coast. Windham had 13 inches by Tuesday morning, with a foot of snow in Hampton and about 10 inches in Nashua.

Numerous schools, day care facilities, and other programs closed, utilities moved crews into place and the Department of Transportation sent out many of its 700 trucks. There were just a couple of highway accidents on otherwise uncrowded roads; the state wasn’t collecting tolls between midnight Monday to midnight Tuesday.

Gov. Maggie Hassan declared a state of emergency.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport canceled flights.
