Major New York airports shut down during storm

Major New York airports shut down during storm

The state received anywhere from one to six inches of snow, the National Weather Service reporter, according to Raleigh's News Observer.

The storm was powered by a rapid drop in barometric pressure that some weather forecasters called a bombogenesis, or a "bomb cyclone".

During the storm's sweep through the South, states of emergency were declared in Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Closure of schools and offices across the US have been announced on Wednesday while no fewer than 2,700 flights have been cancelled ahead of a major winter storm on Thursday, called a "bomb cyclone".

North Carolina authorities said two people died during the storm when their pickup truck ran off a snow-covered road and overturned into a creek Wednesday night in Moore County, which wasn't expected to get any snow.

He says the storm should move in this morning, with the worst of the wind, rain and snow being felt later this evening. "I ask all New Yorkers to stay informed, stay safe and make sure you prepare for cold and snow".

There is also a risk of coastal flooding.

Islip, N.Y., accumulated 13 inches of snow at the rate of 2 inches to 3 inches per hour, and wind gusts reached 50 mph at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.

Winter Storm Grayson has ravaged much of the East Coast with strong winds and snowfall totals bordering on a foot of powder, depending on location.

All public schools were closed Thursday, but will reopen Friday, de Blasio said.

NY sanitation workers are getting ready to deploy 2,200 ploughs to help clear the streets, City's Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia, said.

About 12 inches of snow are expected in Boston, as well as the eastern and central parts of the state.

Numbing temperatures have also had some unusual effects: cold-shocked iguanas fell out of trees in Florida and wildlife officials in the state said they had rescued more than 200 stunned sea turtles from freezing waters.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker warned residents of the risky conditions to come.

It's a different story down south by the mouth of the Delaware Bay as places like Rehoboth Beach received more than 7 inches of snow by the same time. Northeast Regional Service between Washington, D.C., and Newport News/Norfolk, Virginia, was canceled for Thursday. Localized snow amounts of up to 10 inches are possible, especially across Queens and Nassau Counties.

"New York is no stranger to severe winter weather and this time we are facing two systems at once", Cuomo said in a statement. SC saw its third heaviest snowfall in one day on record in Charleston, where 5.3 inches of snow was measured Wednesday.

Earlier in the week, winter weather brought unusually cold temperatures and snowfall to southern states, as far as Florida.
