BOSTON (AP) — The monster snowstorm that left some Boston-area communities with another two feet of snow or more is gone, but the aftereffects continue.

The region continues to clean up, but coming hard on the heels of two other major snowstorms, there is no place to move the latest snowfall.

The storm also forced Boston's transit system to suspend all rail service for the entire day today to clean tracks and repair equipment.

Boston hospitals have set up sleeping areas for workers and police are offering rides to work for doctors and nurses.

Another problem is the possibility of roof collapses. Several partial collapses were reported yesterday, and the danger remains. Most schools remain closed, and a school district north of Boston has closed all schools for the week over concerns about strained roofs.
