Winter storms have left 14 million people in the United States on alert

A severe winter storm hit the eastern United States and inundated more than 14 million people.

Weather-related disruptions are being felt across the country. Several schools canceled classes and the New York City Department of Emergency Management issued a notice not to travel Monday morning.

In the southern Appalachians, snowfall is expected to be 4 to 20 centimeters, and in the Mid-Atlantic region 7 to 15 centimeters of snow can be found. In addition, there are winter weather warnings for rural areas of New England.

Meanwhile, severe storms and flooding are forecast in the southeastern region, where coastal flooding will cause problems along with high tides, and weather warnings will extend from Texas to Maine to the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic coast and the Pacific Northwest.

The winter, with its Govt-19 vulnerabilities, also caused headaches for those who booked a flight. More than 2,700 flights were canceled in the United States on Sunday (February 2), and more than 1,600 flights were canceled on Monday, according to the Flyover Surveillance Service.

New York City began spraying salt on the streets Sunday night, with Mayor Eric Adams saying there would be an inch to three inches of snow in the morning.

Christina Farrell, New York City’s first deputy commissioner for emergency management, said temperatures could drop significantly overnight, which could create ice.

For travelers, Adams also advised to go “at a slow pace” and “do not rush”. He said we are ready to face the storm.

In New Jersey, Governor Bill Murphy declared a state of emergency in five districts in preparation for the storm, which is expected to bring severe snowfall, wind speeds and coastal flooding in the south of the state.

Col. Pat Callahan of the New Jersey State Police said the forecast of four to eight centimeters south “worries us, so we did not take it lightly and want to make sure everyone is ready.”

Mid-Atlantic and Southeast

A winter storm warning has been issued in Washington until the afternoon. Heavy and wet snowstorms will accumulate at 7 to 17 centimeters, with winds of up to 56 kilometers per hour.

Dangerous travel conditions are expected for day and night travel, and schools in Washington and Baltimore are closed.

Some parts of North Carolina could be affected by severe storms, rain, blizzards, winds and coastal flooding. Governor Roy Cooper urged residents to be vigilant about local weather forecasts and to be prepared for expected conditions in the area.

“It’s important to be constantly aware of changing weather and have a way of getting weather warnings,” Cooper said. “A little preparation before the impact of severe or winter weather can help avoid difficulties and emergencies later.”

Meanwhile, parts of Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee received overnight winter storm warnings, many of which lasted until noon (local time). Snowfall of up to 12 cm is expected at high altitudes.

According to the National Weather Service, “although the land is relatively warm due to the recent high temperatures, snow will fall at a higher rate and accumulate even on the roads.”

Snow in the west is expected to subside later this Monday. Slippery roads and black snow conditions can last until Tuesday (4) morning.

Extreme levels of flood danger were announced in at least three places in western Kentucky. According to the Meteorological Department, rivers and streams continue to rise due to heavy rains.

“All the water coming from these storms takes several hours to pass through local drainage systems in urban areas,” the report said. 5 to 11 cm of rain fell.

On Saturday, Kentucky Governor Andy Bessier declared a state of emergency across the state due to heavy rain, hurricanes, hurricanes and high winds, all of which followed a hurricane earlier this week.


In the Pacific Northwest, a new system will bring greater snowfall and higher travel risks.

The system will bring heavy rainfall to beaches and valleys, where isolated areas may be at risk of flooding. Extreme levels of flood danger were announced in the area today.

“This strong wind will cause a lot of snow from the dry powder snow currently on the ground. This will significantly reduce visibility, especially in mountainous areas and open lands, ”the Meteorological Service warned.

This reduced visibility will undoubtedly lead to dangerous trips across the region to start the week.


The climate in the Midwest is relatively mild, but the temperature is much lower.

Snowfall is possible with a forecast of gradual warming and before the temperature drops again in the middle of the week.
