Nor'Easter Slamming East Coast With Heavy Rain, Strong Winds

The storm has roughly 80 million people along its path, with 22 million of those affected by a coastal flood warning, according to CNN.

"Strong gusty winds will continue with sustained winds of 20 mph to 30 mph and gusts 40 mph to 50 mph possible", Cuomo, the governor, said. The nor'easter also brought travel services to a halt.

The worst of the weather is supposed to taper off over Friday night into Saturday, weather officials said. Amtrak suspended all service on the Northeast corridor until Saturday. The Steamship Authority's 6:30 a.m. vehicle ferry left for the mainland, but it then canceled its remaining service on the day, and through at least the noon departure from Nantucket Saturday.

Virgin Trains reported issues running services between England and Scotland due to the current weather. A high tide late Friday morning came up a little short, reaching 14.67 feet, but still sent water sloshing through the streets of East Boston.

The storm dropped more than a 30.5 centimetres of snow in western and northern parts of NY state, as heavy rain lashed coastal areas.

SEPTA said a bus was struck by a tree on the Schuylkill Expressway about 1 p.m., but no serious injuries were reported. We will be using barricades and cones to stop traffic. "Don't make yourself an emergency".

"We expect that to reopen once the waters recede", MacVicar said.

Winds along parts of the MA coast that whipped in excess of 90 miles per hour are due to ease Saturday, CNN forecasters said. A Department of Public Works crew worked with the Toscana Corp.to install Jersey barriers to minimize the damage.

High winds were also causing havoc across the region. She was more anxious about the next high tide coming up around midnight tonight. "Just bummed that we have to wait".

Wilbur Ross: Trump's Import Tariffs Are 'No Big Deal'

On Saturday, icicles caused damage to overhead cables in Bishopton tunnel in Scotland, while North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue knocked down unsafe shards of ice overhanging a footpath.

The other five people killed included two children. Some sources put the death toll as high as nine.

"When you've got a storm like this that sits off the coast, and you've got the constant pounding of the waves and high water because it's not receding, that's potentially more significant".

Town officials on Wednesday began preparing for the impending storm.

Highway Supt. John Corso said the area around Wilbur Avenue that dips down under the railroad trestle that now carries the bike path was usually one of the first areas to flood in the city, and it had remained clear.

- A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. Friday for Lower Manhattan and the coastal areas of Queens and Staten Island. There will likely be widespread inundation of coastal roads and basements with life-threatening inundation depths above 3 or more feet possible in some locations. "Our thinking is there will likely be more structural damage in this event given the larger waves and occurring over multiple tide cycles. This is a potentially very unsafe event and evacuations of some neighborhoods my be necessary and in addition, severe costal erosion is likely". By Saturday afternoon, airports from Washington DC to Boston were still reporting dozens of delays and cancellations.

High winds toppled a tree that fell across Bridgewater Road in Aston Friday morning.

"Do not try to drive through the water!" the Duxbury Fire Department in MA said.

By Friday morning, Wyoming, N.Y., east of Buffalo, was bombarded by 24 inches of snow in just 24 hours.
