East Coast Deals With Blizzard

The storm is causing major problems for anyone who needs to travel... by road, rail or air. From the Carolinas… to New England… much of the East Coast is buried in snow.

More than a foot of snow -- and windy, white-out conditions -- made driving treacherous

A state of emergency was declared in six states.

Officials told non-essential workers to come in late… or just stay home.

Amtrak suspended train service from New York to Maine… and on some routes in the mid-Atlantic.

And this storm is likely to tie up air travel for days. Thousands of flights have been cancelled at airports across the region… even here in Washington where there’s very little snow on the ground.

As far south as Georgia and Alabama, the storm arrived in time for a white Christmas.

In New England - it became a full blown Noreaster - battering the Massachusetts coast – and filling the streets with icy floodwaters.

In Scituate Massachusetts – two families lost their homes – despite the best efforts of firefighters in the freezing cold.

It could take several more days to dig out.

The storm prompted the N-F-L to postpone a Sunday night football game between the Eagles and the Vikings in Philadelphia... It will be played tomorrow instead.
