People are freaking out over the storm that is about to impact the east. Here is a clip from the NYC mayors office from earlier today.
But in all seriousness… the storm could produce blizzard conditions of potentially historic proportions in parts of New England. 1 to 2 feet of snow is forecasted along the densely populated Interstate 95 corridor from the New York City area to Boston and beyond.
Blizzard warnings have now been issued from parts of southern and eastern New England, including Boston, Hartford and Providence, to the New York City metro area and Long Island.
