Snow starts to fall as storm threatens to paralyze the crowded Northeast US
January 27, 2015 00:56 GMT
NEW YORK (AP) -- The snow fall totals are being measured in inches for now, but forecasters say the final totals are likely to be in feet as a major winter storm hits the Northeast.
More than 35 million people along the Philadelphia-to-Boston corridor have rushed to get home today as governors in the affected states took pre-emptive action, ordering roads to be closed to all but emergency vehicles and asking residents to stay out of the streets.
FlightAware.com says more than 6,700 U.S. flights through tomorrow have already been scrubbed, according to tracking service FlightAware.com, and another 2,000 have been delayed. And the cancelations and delays are expected spill over into Wednesday, if not longer.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for a 250-mile stretch of the Northeast, meaning heavy, blowing snow and potential whiteout conditions. Forecasters warned that the wind could gust to 75 mph or more along the Massachusetts coast and up 50 mph farther inland.
