Branches also will be closing in Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and parts of Maine, according to spokesman T.J. Crawford. The bank is posting updates on its Facebook page and on Twitter.

Eastern also has been updating employees and customers on its Facebook page and on Twitter, and said that for the safety of colleagues and customers its branches and call center would close at noon.
