Another Nor'easter shuts down northeast
The northeast is being battered by yet another nor'easter, just as they are cleaning up and trying to restore power from the last one. Weather conditions quickly deteriorated throughout the day on Wednesday, as the storm moved in from the Midwest. The first hit was Pennsylvania, and the storm will continue to move northward along the coast until Friday.
The heaviest snow is expected Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. The higher snowfall totals will range from five to twenty inches, and are expected to fall on the large metropolitan areas, such as New York City, Albany, and Boston.
Wind gusts will not be as strong as last week's Nor'easter, only gusting between 40 and 50 MPH. However, that is still strong enough to take out more power lines. Tens of thousands of residents and companies in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New york are still without power. This is of high concern, and is prompting the state of New Jersey to issue a State of Emergency at 8 PM Wednesday.
The storm is putting the northeast states at a standstill. Flights in and out of airports, especially New York, are cancelled and delayed, and schools are forced to close.
