Heavy Blizzard Paralyzes New York City

A powerful winter storm slammed the I-95 corridor from Philadelphia to Boston on Sunday. Through today, the blizzard will bring travel to a standstill along the coastline of northern New England as well.

The storm unleashed around a foot of snow and howling winds in cities and towns from Philadelphia through New York City to Boston as it advanced northward offshore Sunday and Sunday night. So far New Jersey has been hit with the heaviest snow. As of early this morning, 29.0 inches of snow has buried Lyndhurst, and 26.5 inches of snow have fallen in Elizabeth.

The impending storm prompted the NFL to postpone Sunday night's matchup between the Eagles and Vikings in Philadelphia before the storm even arrived. Nearly a foot of snow piled up as the day unfolded, and the snow continued overnight.
