'Bomb Cyclone' winter storm ravages U.S. and Canada east coast

If you're confused on the various watches, warnings and advisories in your local area, the weather service broke it down. All flights at New York's John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports were temporarily suspended, and airports in Newark, New Jersey, and Boston reported more than half of their flights canceled.

The storm is fueled by intense cold across the USA, which collided with relatively warm air over the Atlantic.

A brutal storm is wreaking havoc in various parts of the U.S., extending a cold snap that has been linked to at least 17 deaths.

What is unique about this storm, though, is that it is developing so far south, Jackson said.

States of emergency have been declared by the governors of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

The Miami Herald says it has been three years since people in South Florida experienced cold like this. Tides in New York could run about 18 inches higher than normal, putting parts of Queens and Staten Island particularly at risk until about noon, Faye Morrone, a weather service meteorologist in Upton, New York, said.

On Wednesday, the same storm brought historic cities in the Southeastern United States their heaviest snowfall in three decades.

In Tallahassee, Fla., residents saw snow for the first time in almost 30 years. The name stems from winds over coastal areas that are usually from the northeast.

In surrounding Moore County, the snow caused a traffic jam Wednesday that kept some people stuck in their cars for hours, drivers told WRAL-TV.

"Snow is one thing - we can handle snow", he said in a briefing Thursday morning.

"We can not and will not order people up in trucks to fix lines when the winds are too high", Malloy said. "We are going to have 700 pieces of equipment".

Coastal eastern MA, including Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, could see damaging wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour Thursday, Dean said.

Reuters are reporting that the usa energy industry is braced for a major test to refineries and power plants as an intense winter storm roared up the Atlantic Coast, bringing heavy snowfall and high winds to a region already beset with several days of extreme cold.

Numerous states hit with snow yesterday may be in for another round early next week as a system developing in the Pacific Northwest makes its way east.

The remarkable pictures of ice in North Florida and snow along the Georgia coastline is the result of a storm system so powerful it has its own name - a bomb.

"The potential exists for risky travel, scattered power outages, tidal flooding, and very cold wind chills", the Weather Service said on its website.
