A late-winter snowstorm bore down on the Northeast Tuesday, blanketing large swaths of the area in snow, but shifted inland, dramatically reducing the expected snowfall for the New York City area.
The storm which stretched from Washington, D.C. to New England, halted school, work and travel for millions of Americans.
Blizzard warnings have been issued in parts of nine states in the densely populated Northeast. The hardest hit areas so far were eastern Pennsylvania, northwest New Jersey and upstate New York, which received 1 to 2 feet of snow. Five states — New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania — have declared states of emergency.
The storm comes less than a week before the start of spring.
