PROVIDENCE -

Rhode Island State Police said Tuesday that they've assisted nearly 52 stranded motorists across the state during the latest burst of winter weather.

The state police said they responded to more than 29 crashes since the snow began falling Tuesday morning.

Several municipalities, including Cranston, Warwick and North Providence, enacted parking bans. There were few school closing and delay notices because this week is February vacation for many school districts.

T.F. Green Airport in Warwick reported some flight cancellations, and RIPTA was detouring some routes.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation tweeted that 1,692 crews were treating roads and plowing where necessary.
