Snowfall due to disability slows travel, winter storm hits southern and northeastern US, leaving thousands without power
A major winter storm has left Buffalo frozen in Asheville, North Carolina, and Buffalo, New York, leaving tens of thousands of people without power.
And in the northeast, 2 cm of snow fell in some areas on Monday, preventing road workers from continuing. A tornado hit Interstate 90 west of Pennsylvania with heavy snowfall, high winds and snowfall. The utility teams had to help each other out on slippery roads.
Buffalo has been hit by more than 16 inches of snow – the most common to date in 64 years. In Rochester, two residents said they spent about two hours digging in their car.
“There is more snow than fluff,” said one.
But the roads are not the only problem. More than 1,600 domestic flights were canceled on Monday as frustrated passengers tried to return home.
Joe Basilio, who was trying to fly to Jacksonville, Florida, said, “Hopefully it would be best to see if another plane was opened.
The storm broke out to the southeast last weekend. More than 600 crashes have been reported in North Carolina, including two deaths off the coast of Myrtle.
The storm also cut off electricity to the area.
“I go out with a pot of boiling water to keep my baby’s milk warm,” a Georgia father, who had to use a gas stove at work, told CBS News.
Much of the hurricane wrecked southwest Florida, destroying countless homes on Sunday.
“It sounded like a racing train. It was so loud, I was off my feet,” said Edward Murray.
As the last winter regime continues to move out to sea, meteorologists say another snowstorm is likely to hit the northeast this weekend.
