A monstrous blizzard has dumped more than two feet of snow on the northeastern United States, killing at least one, leaving hundreds of thousands without power, and forcing the cancellation of thousands of flights.
The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings for the northeastern coast, including the New York metropolitan area.
“Travel conditions will continue to be extremely hazardous if not impossible,” the NWS said.
The storm is expected to gradually taper off throughout the day on Saturday. Snowfall is forecast to total from 2 to 3 feet in parts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
One man in his 70s was killed when a driver lost control of her vehicle and hit him in Poughkeepsie, New York.
Utility companies say there are currently about 600,000 customers without power across Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee said about 180,000 residents there were without power. National Guard troops
were rescuing stranded motorists, he said.
“We need people to stay off the roads right now. That’s critical,” he told CNN.
