A storm like today’s was not just an expected part of life for the citys first winter.
“It was literally something that was coming at you every single day,” said Michael Zilinskas, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Denver.
The snowstorm hit around 11 a.m. local time (11:00 a.k.
ET), bringing winds of up to 50 mph (80 kph).
“The first day of the snowstorm was probably the most severe that I’ve seen in my career, to say the least,” said Zilinskias.
A few inches of snow fell in Denver, including the city of Aurora, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Denver.
A few more inches fell in New York City, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) northwest of the city.
At least 11 people were injured, according to the National Park Service.
It wasn’t just New York that got hit hard, according, as snow-filled roads and buildings were also affected.
New York City’s streets were jammed with pedestrians, as were New Jersey’s.
About 6 inches of the storm fell in Jersey City, New Jersey, according the National Hurricane Center.
More than 2 million people have been ordered by the National Guard to evacuate, and thousands of flights were canceled.
The city’s subway system was shut down for about six hours, causing delays on the system that connects the New York and New Jersey areas.
Snow in the air is always dangerous, but for people like Zilinsky, the first day was not the worst.
When you think about snow storms, you think of hurricanes or typhoons, but when you think “real snowstorm,” you think you have snow.
“It feels like a hurricane or a tornado,” Zilinskias said.
Zilinskis said he was “very concerned” that the snow could lead to another storm that could hit New York, New York.
And when it came to the storm itself, Zilinki said, it was not that bad.
“There’s no danger to anybody, other than for people that are in a rush to get to work or to get on their way to work,” Zilsinskas said, adding that the only injuries were minor.
But the storm is far from over, as the National Capital Area has been warned to expect another snowstorm on Tuesday.
Officials have issued a mandatory evacuation order for the entire Capital Region.
