A powerful hurricane of the Nor Easter race will hit the east coast of the United States over the weekend. Snowfall of up to 60 cm in some places. More than 2,000 flights were canceled on Saturday. Americans store food and prepare for difficult days.
An event called Nor Easter by weather forecasters will hit the United States over the weekend. These were violent storms that struck the east coast of the United States and the Atlantic Ocean off Canada. Their appearance results from blizzards or heavy rains, and hurricane force winds. The U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) on Friday issued a blizzard warning for the Boston metropolitan area, which has a population of about 4.9 million.
Weather forecasters forecast up to 60 centimeters of snow in some places and winds of up to 110 kilometers per hour. Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard Islands receive heavy snowfall.
“From tonight we declare a snow emergency,” Boston Mayor Michelle Woo tweeted Friday.
United States. “First Most Powerful Storm”
Blizzard warnings apply from South and North Carolina to Maine, where there will be at least 30 cm of snow. The NWS said it would rain from Friday afternoon until Saturday. Winds could reach 80 km / h.
Patrick O’Hara, a NWS meteorologist in New Jersey, said: “Weather like this makes travel almost impossible. It’s the strongest storm since this year.”
On Friday morning, more than 2,000 flights scheduled for Saturday were canceled, including 230 flights from Boston Logan Airport.
Meteorologists predict 20 cm snowfall in New York “Over the weekend, please follow local forecasts carefully, stay on the road and avoid unnecessary travel,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul wrote on Twitter.
People keep stock
NWS meteorologists warn that snowfall could significantly reduce visibility and that strong winds could break branches and damage power lines.
Local media reported that crowds were high on Friday at several grocery stores as people had gathered before the storm hit.
Libraries, churches, clinics and some shops will be closed on Saturday.
“Saturday 29, we’ll be closed due to a blizzard. Call us Wimps if you dare …” the Riverrun Bookstore in Portsmouth, New Hampshire tweeted.
