NEW ENGLAND (ABC NEWS) – Today much of the Northeast continues cleaning up from the monster storm that made a surprise turn inland bringing the heaviest snowfall to upstate New York and Northern New England.
While major cities, such as Philadelphia, New York and Boston were spared the worst of it.
ABC’s Maggie Rulli is in New York with the latest.
Well that massive winter nor’easter may have brought a little less snow in New York City and other cities across the East Coast than what was expected. But it did dump upwards of 20 inches on people in upstate New York, sometimes falling as much as four inches an hour.
And even though we didn’t get the snow we did get plenty of mess, high winds, freezing rain, sleet. It made for one nasty commute. And one that could continue through tomorrow.
Officials are now warning that freezing overnight temps could cause the roads to re-ice and they warn about black ice.
Also air travel, severely affected across the country by this storm, major hubs along the East Coast were impacted, causing about 6,000 flights to be cancelled throughout the day and people are still feeling the effects of that.
One last major concern, high winds and beach erosion, that storm surge along the eastern coast of Massachusetts. Sometimes wind gusts of 80 miles per hour were felt.
But some good news, yes the temperatures are still freezing, yes there are still piles of snow around, but spring is just a few days away. So hopefully some warmth around the corner.
