State of Emergency Declared in NE U.S.

Posted by feww on January 27, 2015

‘Crippling snow’ and ‘life-threatening’ blizzard:  States of Emergency declared in five states

A paralyzing blizzard is buffeting northeaster US with massive, possibly record, snowfall amounts and life-threatening blizzard conditions, prompting eight states—New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania* and Maine—to declare states of emergency.

Thousands of flights into and out of the Northeast have been canceled with snowfall amounts of 1 – 3 feet or more forecast for many parts of the region, while hurricane-force winds are forecast to batter the coastal areas.

Up to 30 million people will face blizzard conditions Monday/Tuesday,  while up to 60 million people could see 6 – 12 inches or more of snow as the storm system, dubbed “Winter Storm Juno,” barrels across the region, forecasters said.

NYC Mayor said 2,300 snowploughs will be deployed to clear the city, while urging residents to stay out of their way.

Driving bans have been imposed across dozens of cities and counties in the NE, including NYC and Boston.

[*Pennsylvania Gov. issued a disaster emergency proclamation, and called up the National Guards.]

NWS said:

“A storm system off the East Coast will continue to strengthen as it develops into a major nor’easter on Monday. As the storm moves up the coast, it is expected to bring snowfall of 1-3 feet or more to many parts of the Northeast through Tuesday evening, including New York City and Boston. Strong, gusty winds will combine with the snow to create blizzard conditions along and near the coast.”

  • High-impact winter storm expected to bring crippling snowfall amounts and life-threatening blizzard conditions to much of the Northeast
  • Blizzard warnings are in effect for the coastal areas of New Jersey through Maine.
  • Winter storm warnings are in effect from New Jersey to Maine. Winter storm warnings are also in effect for an area of the Appalachians in West Virginia.
  • Coastal flood warnings and advisories are in effect from Delaware to the coast of Maine.
