A Powerful Nor’easter Brings Heavy Snow and Disrupts Northeaster US

A fast-moving nor’easter swept through the Northeast on Tuesday, dumping heavy snow and causing power outages and travel disruptions throughout the region.

New York City experienced its snowiest day in two years with 8 centimeters of snow falling in Central Park. This brought an end to a record drought of 744 consecutive days without significant snowfall. In addition to New York, more than a foot of snow fell from Pennsylvania to Connecticut, with at least 15 inches reported in those three states.

The snowstorm knocked out power for more than 130,000 customers in Pennsylvania and thousands more in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Virginia. The dense, wet snow weighed down tree branches, causing outages, and gusty winds made the situation worse.

The storm also resulted in over 1,000 canceled flights, causing major disruptions at airports in New York, Boston, and New Jersey. Traffic accidents and school closures were reported in New Jersey, New York, and other affected areas.

Coastal areas along New Jersey, Delaware, Long Island, and Connecticut were warned of strong winds and potential flooding, with governors urging residents to stay home and avoid non-essential travel.

For many northeastern cities, the snowy weather was a stark contrast to the warmest winter on record. Governor Kathy Hochul of New York advised residents to take all necessary precautions and work remotely if possible while enjoying the snow safely.

In Massachusetts and New Jersey, officials warned that the snowfall could be too heavy for plows and urged residents to exercise extreme caution if they must venture outside.

As governors and local authorities prepare for dangerous conditions, they are working to keep transportation systems running and clear roads for snowplows. The storm comes as a reminder of the impact nor’easter storms can have on the region during this time of year.
