'Blinding snow' storm batters New York City and US north-east

A powerful winter storm has engulfed the US north-east, blanketing much of the region in heavy snow. The storm is expected to bring nearly 2ft of snow to New York, Boston and several other cities. ’This is a dangerous, life-threatening situation,’ New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, said while declaring a state of emergency in 44 counties and New York City. Mayor Bill De Blasio also declared a local state of emergency – suspending in-person classes, restricting non-essential travel and putting coronavirus vaccination appointments on hold. ‘You’re going to see two to four inches of snow per hour. That is extremely intense snow. That’s blinding snow’
