Northeast US blizzards create havoc
Blizzard wreaks havoc
January 24, 2005 In the northeastern corner of the USA, snowstorms have created mayhem as they cover the region with snow and ice. Several cold fronts, which lead to these storms, have spread from the south of the United States to areas like Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Jersey, just to name the few states with serious blizzard emergencies. Most of the northeast region is covered in powdery whiteness. Up to two feet make transportation virtually impossible, even for air flight. The blizzards have not only wrecked ground transport, but have disrupted thousands of flights. This blizzard was extreme, even by New England standards.
The blizzard also hit Southern states and left four inches of snow in Washington DC.
