A massive blizzard has approached the North-east in the USA, forcing people to stock up on food and supplies before it dumps up to a metre of snow from New York to Boston and beyond. Around 2.5 Cr people live in the region as of now.
Meanwhile, the airlines have cancelled 4,300 + flights in view of the impending snow blizzard and millions of tons of salt and shovelling equipment have been put on the stand-by in preparation for the calamity.
The heaviest snowfall is expected today when the wind gusts could touch 121 km/ hr. It has also led to fears of power failures and flooding in coastal areas, which are still recovering from Superstorm Sandy in October.
Boston could end up getting a metre of snow, while New York City may expect up to 30 cm.
