United States, Canada Brace For Blizzard, Disruption to Transportation Likely to be Severe
Several areas in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada are preparing for a winter storm due to hit the region Monday and Tuesday. The storm is expected to bring heavy snowfall to Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania, with light precipitation in Washington, D.C. More than 1,900 flights have been cancelled for Monday, and another 1,800 are expected to be cancelled on Tuesday. The governor of Connecticut has issued a travel ban starting at 9 p.m. on Monday evening to allow for clean-up efforts. Business operations will be heavily impacted throughout Monday and Tuesday, with power outages and further delays likely throughout the week.
