U.S. Northeast braces for the biggest snowstorm in the history of weather

    2015/01/27

NSFW    The U.S. Northeast is bracing for the biggest snowstorm in the universe, one that could drop up to 3 feet of snow and hit areas with hurricane-strength winds over the next few days.

Governors in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island have all declared states of emergency.

Some 60 million people along the East Coast from Philadelphia to Boston rushed to get home before Juno hit land.

Officials urged people to get home as quickly as possible and off the streets for their own safely, which led to mass confusion on city transit.

All mass transit in New York City was closed as of 11 p.m. Monday. All non-emergency vehicles were also banned from roads. Those caught violating the traffic ban could be fined up to $300 and even arrested.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said: “This will be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City. People must be prepared. This is not business as usual.”

Airports along the East Coast have been shutting down, with more than 7,700 flights cancelled.

What role will New Jersey Governor Chris Christie play in all of this? Will New York really be hit with the biggest snowstorm this planet has seen since the beginning of recorded time? Either way, SNOW DAY!!
