Maine Soldiers to Help Massachusetts Dig Out After Record Snowfalls

AUGUSTA, Maine - The Maine Army National Guard will be sending about 60 soldiers to Massachusetts to help out there after record snowfalls in that state.

Massachusetts has struggled with snow removal with about six feet falling there in the last two weeks. Several roof collapses have been reported as a result of the heavy accumulation.

Maine Guard spokesman Pete Morrison says the troops will go to Massachusetts with heavy equipment to help clear the snow.
