Storm hits US East Coast
« on: March 15, 2017, 09:29:43 AM »
The Northeast was paralyzed by the late winter storm - many schools closed, over 6000 flights were cancelled. While New York City was not hit as badly as expected, some rural regions expected up to two feet of snow.

As storm Stella swept through the densely populated Northeastern United States on Tuesday, more than 6,000 flights were cancelled, nearly a quarter-million people from Virginia northward lost power, many trains were cancelled and schools were closed.

The storm which turned into a blizzard in Massachusetts gusted through the Washington-to-Boston corridor at nearly hurricane force over 70 miles per hour (112 kilometers), throwing the region back into freezing temperatures and heavy snow after a mild February had lulled people into thinking the worst of winter was over. Some 50 million people from Pennsylvania to Maine faced the "rapidly intensifying nor'easter", which usually hits the region much earlier in the winter.
Snow, ice and high winds has caused dangerous driving conditions. A 16-year-old girl was killed in a traffic accident in New Hampshire after losing control of her car on a snowy road and hitting a tree on Tuesday morning.
Most people followed the request by governors and mayors to stay home.
