Blizzard blankets northeast in snow

In National News, News, World News

The northeastern U.S. is now recovering from a blizzard that dumped up to 40 inches of snow over the weekend, reported Reuters.

Nine people were killed and hundreds of thousands were left without power when hurricane-force winds brought feet of snow to the nation’s east coast. It was reported that 350,000 customers in nine states are still without power as of Sunday night.

Roads are still undrivable as residents and cities work to move the snow.

Boston Mayor Tom Menino cancelled school today after two feet of snow fell in his city.

About 5,800 flights were canceled over the weekend, according to flight-tracking software Flightaware. Airports in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts began reopening late Saturday.

Massachusetts and Connecticut instituted their travel bans, Massachusetts’s first since 1978. Drivers found on the road during the storm could face fines or jail time.

States as far west as Colorado are now bracing for a storm of their own.
