— Schools across New England have closed as the Northeast hunkers down for a storm poised to dump up to 3 feet of snow.
The snow has already begun in some areas, with the heaviest amounts falling at night and into tomorrow. Wind gusts could reach 75 mph. Widespread power failures were feared, along with flooding in coastal areas still recovering from Superstorm Sandy in October.
Boston could get up to 3 feet of snow, while New York City was expecting 10 to 14 inches. To the south, Philadelphia was looking at a possible 2 to 5 inches.
Amtrak says its Northeast trains will stop running Friday afternoon.
In New England, it could prove to be among the top 10 snowstorms in history.
New York City has 250,000 tons of salt on standby, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg says, "We hope forecasts are exaggerating the amount of snow."
— Airlines have already canceled more than 2,700 Friday flights as they get ready for a storm that threatens to dump up to 3 feet of snow from New York City to Boston.
Flight-tracking website FlightAware shows 728 cancellations at the three big airports in the New York area. Another 191 flights to or from Boston have been scrubbed, and 137 in Toronto.
Airlines issued so-called "weather waivers," allowing passengers flying in the storm-affected areas to change their flight date without paying a change fee.
Airlines try to get ahead of big storms by canceling flights in advance rather than crossing their fingers that they can operate in bad weather.
