Winter Storm Slams East Coast With Heavy Rain, Snow, And Winds

A winter storm is wreaking havoc across the east coast, and is bringing heavy rain, snow, and damaging winds.
17 states are on alert as of Friday morning, while more than 2,000 flights have already been canceled.
Currently, nearly one million homes and businesses from Michigan to Norrth Carolina are without power.
In the northeast, winds are reaching up to 60 miles-per hour in major metropolitan cities, including New York City, Boston, and Washington D.C.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker warned residents of the storm, saying he expects it to be worse than one earlier this year that flooded parts of Boston’s Seaport District.

“I can’t stress this enough: This is not a snowstorm, but it’s a heck of a storm and people need to take it seriously,” advised Governor Baker. “The flooding, especially along the coastal communities will probably exceed the January 4 storm.”
The governor went on to recommend evacuated residents to stay put until Saturday before returning to their homes.
The National Weather service has forecasted storm surges of up to four feet for eastern Massachusetts
