March 13 marks the 25th anniversary of the blizzard of 1993.

With blizzard conditions stretching from the southeast to the northeast, it was called the Storm of the Century in some areas.

The impact in southern New England was minor compared to other regions of the country.

Six to 12 inches of snow fell within a few hours in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.

The Red Cross set up shelters, as many coastal residents were urged to evacuate.

Then-Gov. Bruce Sundlun would later declare a state of emergency, so the region could recoup some funding from the federal government.
