State of Emergency Called in NY, NJ, CT as Blizzard Approaches
A state of emergency has been called by the governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut as a crippling blizzard heads for the Northeastern states with more than 2 feet of snow, coastal flooding, and heavy winds that are bound to cause power outages and bring traffic to a halt. A complete shutdown of New York City's subway and bus system has already been issued starting at 11 p.m. Conditions are expected to expedite beginning at 8 p.m. with snow falling as quickly as 2 to 4 inches per hour. Hotels have no vacancies, shoppers are lining the grocery stores, and the homeless outreach teams have been doubled.
